Rent a Charter Bus and Participate the Events across the Country
Saturday, April 22, will mark the 48th annual celebration of Earth Day, an event now celebrated in 193 countries around the world. Founded in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin as a day to promote education about and awareness of the natural environment, the event has been expanded in many places to Earth Week, with seven days of programs, workshops, seminars and events dedicated to green awareness.
Whether you rent a charter bus to take you to one of the Earth Day/Earth Week events, or book a charter bus for any trip throughout the year, you’re helping the environment. Instead of putting everyone in a private vehicle, you’ll dramatically reduce carbon emissions into the air when you all travel together on one of the luxurious and comfortable coaches provided by BusRental.com.
Some Earth Day Events from the Past
Every Earth Day sees campaigns and projects around the world, all focused on improving the quality of the air and water and preserving the natural environment for future generations. Here are some examples of ways people have gathered together in the past to help Mother Earth:
- Trees for the Earth—the Earth Day Network has set a global goal to plant 7.8 billion trees by April 22, 2020, the 50th Earth Day. St. Kitts and Nevis, islands in the Caribbean, have taken the challenge and started planting 55,000 trees in 2016, one for every person on the islands.
- More than 20,000 cyclists gathered in Bangaluru, in India, to promote awareness of environmental issues. They also planted 60,000 saplings.
- President Barack Obama signed the Paris climate agreement on Earth Day 2106, along with Chinese leader Xi Jinping
Earth Day 2017
The theme for this year’s Earth Day is “Environmental and Climate Literacy.” Organizers say that, in order to properly address the environmental concerns of today, we need to first help people understand both environmental sciences, as well as the ecological issues facing the planet. Accordingly, the Earth Day Network is providing environmental tool kits to elementary, primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges and community groups. These materials are designed to allow organizations to stage their own teach-ins on climate literacy and other environmental issues.
Here are some of the specific campaigns being launched for Earth Day 2017:
- Green Schools—This campaign seeks to ensure that students have a green-friendly learning environment
- Endangered Species—This project focuses on illegal poaching and habitat encroachment, and seeks to foster ways to minimize the loss of species on the planet
- Reforestation—Approximately 18 million acres of forest disappear from the planet every year, leading to dramatic increases in greenhouse gas emissions. This project seeks to replace those lost trees.
- Green Cities—This campaign encourages cities and city dwellers to adopt sustainable growth and living strategies, including renewable energy sources.
- Campaign for Communities—This initiative works to strengthen local communities to actively promote environmental issues.
