EARTH DAY

“When you look at the most powerful predictor of where the most industrial pollution is, race is the most potent predictor.”

JOIN US ON Earth Day TO LEARN AND LEND YOUR MANY HELPING HANDS!

Earth Day in Cambridge means opportunities to volunteer locally for the environment.

On Earth Day we invite you to learn, get outside, pull weeds, make art, smell the earth and more. Come lend your hands and your ideas and participate in conversations about climate, conservation, equity and hope for the future.

Come talk about environmental justice. Enjoy a bird walk. Engage in citizen science. Learn how the historic impact  of environmental degradation on communities of color and how access to nature has denied to too many people and how we can fix that. 

We can all take steps to create a greener, healthier, more sustainable Cambridge. From using less and re-using more, to changing out our lightbulbs to taking public transportation to supporting your local farmer’s markets, even small efforts can make a big difference. 

We encourage you to volunteer with others on Earth Day with one of our local environmental organizations or plan something of your own. 

Many Helping Hands 365 supports the work of local organizations that focus on the environment, city green spaces, carbon footprint and sustainability.
