Earth Day Initiative

Since 1970, Earth Day has been a catalyst for ongoing education, action, and change.  Our mission is to carry the enthusiasm and spirit of Earth Day into the 21st Century to meet today’s environmental challenges. Earth Day Initiative is a 501(c)(3) organization that promotes environmental awareness and solutions through partnerships with schools, community organizations, businesses, and governments.  We do so through year-round programs as well as our annual Earth Day events.


As we approach the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we’re also launching a wide-reaching campaign to channel all of that interest and enthusiasm into real and impactful results.  Our Count to 50 campaign will get people across the country to switch to clean energy in whatever ways they can.  In some cases, you can sign up for clean energy in less than 60 seconds and ensure that not one more cent of your monthly utility bill goes to dirty energy. Join the campaign and find out how to get involved at today!
