VyraNews #16: How to Celebrate Earth Day 2024 with Employees.

Hey there, Earth Champions! 🌍

Each year, on April 22nd, the world celebrates Earth Day, a global event dedicated to environmental protection and sustainability.

Since its inception in 1970, Earth Day has evolved into a worldwide call to action, emphasising the importance of collective effort in preserving our planet.

What is the theme of Earth Day 2024?

Each Earth Day has a specific theme.

The 2024 theme is “Planet vs. Plastics”, which is focused on engaging governments, institutions, businesses, and the more than 1 billion citizens who participate annually in Earth Day to do their part – everyone accounted for, everyone accountable.

“The Planet vs. Plastics campaign is a call to arms, a demand that we act now to end the scourge of plastics and safeguard the health of every living being upon our planet”.
