This Earth Day, April 22 is unlike any other. In the year 2021, we are celebrating 51 years of love and recognition for the planet we live on. This year, we also have a unique opportunity to Build Back Better. We are empowered to create the world we want to live in -- a world where all plants, animals, current and future human beings can not just live, but thrive for the next 100 years and beyond. We are one Earth and one ASU community – a better world starts with you, but even small, individual actions add up quickly when we do them together. Try a few of these impactful actions this Earth Day, April 22 (or every day) and let’s start building!
