5 minutes a day to save the planet

the challenge \\ Earth Day 2020 is the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day event held in the United States, and organizations around the globe are gearing up to make the celebration unlike any other. The Earth Year Challenge invites you to start the celebration on January 1st, 2020, making every day Earth Day. Each month of the new year will have a central theme, with weekly related goals. The challenge is to create change in your life, with five minutes a day, a week, or a month to reduce your impact on our home.

Take a look at how your lifestyle impacts the planet. New tasks each week to understand your role in our global ecosystem.
