Earth Day Works – the fifty year old day is really helping

When’s the last time you thought about Earth Day? Once you’ve exited primary school, it’s not really a day that comes up a lot. Maybe the Google doodle reminds you with a cool image or even a game but most people don’t think about it. But maybe we should take greater notice of it because places that do have better environmental outcomes than areas that don’t.

That makes sense, after all, if you celebrate Earth Day, chances are you care a good deal about the environment. But the study also showed that those exposed early to the concept of Earth Day had better outcomes for environmental care years on.

So ultimately, although Earth Day may seem silly and like lip service, it really is a long lasting tool to help people engage with and better understand the struggles that are facing the environment at large. So do a coloring page and remind yourself that saving the Earth is cool and the right thing to do.
