Be Better and Do More for Earth Day with GrantWatch

For Earth Day 2017, the GrantWatch family is being better and doing more by banning wasteful, single-use paper cups from the office. A few of us took a little field trip to Marshalls, carpooling to reduce pollution, and facetimed the rest of our office staff to make sure everyone could choose their own new mug. This small task will greatly reduce the waste created by GrantWatch each and every day!

Saturday, April 22nd is Earth Day. Join the Earth Day movement and use GRANTS to make our planet a better place. Make a positive impact of eco-responsibility with environment and preservation grants listed on GrantWatch. There are so many ways we can be better and do more for the environment. Earth Day 2017 is the perfect opportunity to start an eco-friendly initiative for your family or community.

Celebrate Earth Day by taking action and starting an earth friendly project in your community, upgrade the energy efficiency of your home by installing solar panels or make a simple promise to yourself and our planet to start recycling. Get involved with a litter clean up or community garden project in your neighborhood.

The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970, in America.

It was founded by former US senator Gaylord Nelson after he saw the enormous 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. 

Each year, festivals, parades and rallies are held in at least 192 countries to demonstrate support for environmental protection. –Mirror
