Planting Trees for Earth Day at Envirotech
Earth Day, celebrated every April 22, is a special day when planet earth gets centre stage. Since 1970, Earth Day has grown to be one of the largest environmental events in the world with over 6M people participating. This event helps to bring awareness to environmental concerns; encouraging communities to come together to share their stories, successes, and lessons learned on how they are giving back to their planet.
Now forty-six years later, companies like Envirotech help lead the movement with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of example.
On Earth Day April 22, 2016, Envirotech will be celebrating Earth Day by helping to plant 100 trees in Canada.
