It's hard to find something that literally every single person in the world has in common. In fact, it's nearly impossible. But an undeniable shared quality among all people is that we are all housed by Planet Earth. No matter where you're from, what walk of life has shaped you or what you do for a living, you inhabit the Earth. And that's why it's worth celebrating.

Earth Day is a day to take in your surroundings, appreciate them, and make an effort to be kind to your planet. Whether that means volunteering to clear litter off a road, donating to a climate change nonprofit, or simply spending some time outdoors, there's a way for everyone to give some much-needed time and thought to our planet.
