Each year, the Earth Day Network calls on people around the world to act for the environment. For Earth Day 2020—the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the nonprofit’s theme is climate action.
Technology plays an increasingly important role in climate action, especially as this year’s Earth Day movement goes digital. However, one of the most effective innovations to address climate change already exists: the almighty tree.
Since 2013, we have distributed more than 7.4 million tree seedlings to cocoa farmers and 920,000 multi-purpose shade trees as part of our ongoing, industry-leading agroforestry work to protect the forest and preserve biodiversity. It's a commitment that's about more than chocolate — it's about saving our forests. https://bit.ly/2ysXY6r

April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. On the first event in 1970, over 20 million Americans took to the streets in protest calling for increased protections for the planet. A collective generation asked for cleaner water, cleaner air, healthier ecosystems, and an overall healthy, sustainable environment. By the end of 1970, the US Environmental Protection Agency had been created and the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act were all passed into law.
Although many Earth Day activities—whether in your personal life, in your community or within your company—may look and feel differently this year, the COVID-19 crisis has shown us just how precious ‘outside’ really is. And one of the unexpected outcomes of “stay-at-home” orders is a reduction in smog and air pollution, a reduction in river pollution and even endangered sea turtles again laying egg on empty beaches.
