Earth Day

"It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated.

We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly."

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

Celebrate Earth Day with MANY HELPING HANDS 365!

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

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. 

Help us help you the word out! 

If your organization offers Earth Day volunteer opportunities for individuals, groups, teams, and families, please let us know!

EARTH DAY 2023 UPDATEs COMING IN FEBRUARY 2023

“Together we are approaching environmental justice just as what it is: It is a civil rights issue. By examining environmental requirements in conjunction with our civil rights laws, I am confident that we can do a better job of assuring fairness and advancing justice.”

Eric Holder

Environmental justice—climate justice—is racial justice.

 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, conservationm, equity and hope for the future.

Come talk about environmental justice—about how climate justice is racial justice. About the historic impact  of environmental degradation on communities of color and how access has been nature has denied to too many people and how we can fix that.
