Volunteering is a great way to contribute on Earth Day and meet new
friends in the process. Find out about volunteering opportunities in

2. Donate to the Canopy Project.
Planting a tree is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve
the environment and your quality of life. If you don’t have the
opportunity to plant trees in your community, you can simply donate to
the Canopy Project. For every $1 you contribute, they’ll plant a tree.

Every gallon of gasoline your car burns emits about 20 pounds of carbon

you inspire others to celebrate Earth Day and make environmentally
conscious decisions year-around, you have truly made a difference.
