Pledge an “Act of Green” for Earth Day 2012by Leah Koenig | April 20, 2012 | 2 comments
This Sunday, help the Earth Day Network make history. They’re aiming to gather people from around the world in pledging a billion “acts of green” – individual steps people can take towards a healthier environment (like riding a bike to school, taking shorter showers, switching to energy efficient light bulbs, buying carbon offsets for airplane travel, cleaning up a park etc.) that add up to something BIG.
The exciting news is, they are almost there! With two days to go before Earth Day 2012 987,882,597 hours have been pledged. By our count, that’s nearly a billion. Help tip the scales by joining in on the world’s largest environmental service project and pledging your own act of green. Find out more at the video below, then check out our green service ideas below.

Plan a Climate Impact Day event for May 5, 2012 with the environmental organization 350.org.

- Ride your bicycle – to work, to school, or on a fundraising bike ride with Hazon.
