Earth Day Resources

The Earth Day theme of 2018 is End Plastic Pollution. We have a wealth of free resources you can access and download from our website including the K-12 Toolkit that includes a series of lessons, activities, projects, and resources focusing on the threats of plastic pollution. The Toolkit can be accessed here:

As we approach the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2020, we hope to create a platform to unite and activate the wide range of groups and individuals working to educate youth and protect the environment. Our focus for 2020 will be to SAVE the Earth.  The SAVE acronym stands for Science, Activism, Volunteerism, and Education- the four priorities Earth Day Network will emphasize to create a movement that is engaging and permanent – a change of consciousness.


Feel free to contact me if you have questions about the Toolkit or our Earth Day 2020 initiative. We hope that our resources can be helpful to you and the educators in your association. Thank you!
