Celebrating Earth Day 2017
Advocating for Cleaner Land, Air and Water
Each year on April 22, organizations, communities and individuals come together to celebrate Earth Day to increase awareness of current environmental issues. What started in 1970 as a protest for a sustainable and healthy environment has grown to be a much larger movement. Celebrated across the globe, Earth Day is a way to demonstrate just how much you care about the future of the planet. Whether you plant a tree or clean up the neighborhood, it’s important to get involved and keep the momentum going all year long.
At Budget Dumpster, we support organizations nationwide who have sustainable and environmentally-focused missions. Check out some of the Earth Day events we were part of in 2017, then find ideas for making your own contributions to a better planet below.
