Earth Day is officially observed in the United States each year on April 22nd. And this weekend there will be Earth Day events in Charlotte for you and your family to enjoy. Earth Day was established to mark the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. More than 50 years later it is celebrated worldwide as a day of education, advocacy, clean up, and more. According to EarthDay.Org the mission of the 2024 Earth Day is a "commitment to end plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, demanding a 60% reduction in the production of ALL plastics by 2040".
