Partnering to Protect the Planet
Since its founding in 1970, Earth Day has led the collective fight for the health of our planet. Over one billion citizens participate in Earth Day each year.
Growing out of the first Earth Day in 1970, EARTHDAY.ORG is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 150,000 partners in over 192 countries to drive positive action for our planet.
This year, we rally behind the theme “Invest In Our Planet”, which highlights the importance of dedicating our time, resources, and energy to solving climate change and other environmental issues. Investing in our planet is necessary to protect it and the best way to pave a path towards a prosperous future.
When we Invest In Our Planet together, we are supporting innovative climate solutions and healthy communities worldwide.
KATOA is proud to partner with the EARTHDAY.ORG and support both The Great Global Cleanup and The Canopy Project.
The Great Global Cleanup
The Great Global Cleanup is the world’s largest environmental service project – a global campaign to rid our communities of waste and plastic pollution for good. Volunteers work together to create clean communities. EARTHDAY.ORG calls on YOU to lend a hand. Every volunteer counts!
The Great Global Cleanup illustrates how small efforts amplified globally have huge impacts on our ecosystems and help protect and restore our shared home. Check out the Great Global Cleanup Map to join cleanups happening near you, or to organize your own, and join us to help create a waste-free world!
The Canopy Project
EARTHDAY.ORG’s reforestation program, The Canopy Project improves our shared environment by planting trees across the globe. Since 2010, The Canopy Project has planted over 100 million trees, working worldwide to strengthen communities through reforestation.
The Canopy Project targets areas of the world most in need of reforestation, including some of the world’s poorest communities, and land degraded by logging, fires, drought, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. We have also conducted broad tree planting in the wake of environmental disasters. Often, fruit and nut trees are planted, increasing food security for communities in need. The Canopy Project provides education and training to community members where trees are planted and works in planting locations longterm to ensure that every tree survives to maturity.
Each mature tree provides enough oxygen for 10 people to breathe. As little as $1 donated can plant a tree!
