Earth Day is a worldwide celebration of the environment, marked by 500 million people in more than 180 countries. It is a day to remind us that we need to take care of the earth. In Canada, it also signals the end of winter—finally.
As you prepare for Earth Day activities, we have aggregated resources to help you get started.
