Happy Earth Day everyone!
To honor the day, Sustain Charlotte will be hosting a virtual celebration of Earth Day and Sustain Charlotte’s 10th Anniversary this evening at 5pm.
Leaders of the organization will share their history and what they are doing to make the Charlotte region a cleaner and healthier place to live. During the virtual event, they will also ask attendees to share what they’re doing to celebrate Earth Day, and share announcements about ways that people can get involved in supporting a healthier planet while they’re social distancing.

The countdown is ON! #earthday is only a few hours away and we cannot wait to celebrate with all of you! One of the few upsides to social distancing/working from home is that no matter where you are, you can join us for our #virtualcelebrations. While so much in our world feels uncertain, we KNOW that there has never been a better time to give thanks and celebrate our planet! We hope you’ll join us in an effort to come together as a community – united by a cause that is bigger than ourselves. #ISustainCharlotte #sustainability #charlottenc #sustainabilitymatters #becauseitmatters
“The first Earth Day was a response to an urgent and growing human health crisis. And as we find ourselves in the middle of another health crisis, celebrating our planet (and human impact on it) has never been more important,” said Sustain Charlotte’s Executive Director Shannon Binns.
