Earth Day - April 22, 2013
Celebrated every April 22, Earth Day is the largest, most celebrated environmental event worldwide. More than six million Canadians join 1 billion people in over 170 countries in staging events and projects to address local environmental issues.
Earth Day offers an excellent opportunity for individuals, schools, community groups, corporations – and more, to highlight issues surrounding the global water and sanitation crisis.
In raising awareness, we help educate others on the impacts on those living in deeply affected regions and how changes at home can help establish sustainable, environmentally-friendly behaviours.
In supporting new clean water and sanitation projects, we’re helping to sustain, mobilize and strengthen communities. Lives are saved and people are empowered.
