April, the Earth Month

Earth Month is celebrated annually in April — the same month as Earth Day and Earth Week.

Earth Day is held every year on the same day, April 22. This year, Earth Day is on Saturday, April 22, 2023.

Earth Week is celebrated the week leading up to Earth Day. This year, Earth Week is held from Sunday, April 16 to Saturday, April 22, 2023.

Millions of people around the world celebrate and recognise Earth Month as a means to both advocate for and protect the planet and its resources. Earth Month puts a collective global focus on celebrating and preserving the earth’s beauty for decades and centuries to come.

The theme for both Earth Day and Earth Month 2023 is “Invest In Our Planet.” This year’s theme focuses on engaging governments, institutions, businesses, and the more than 1 billion citizens who participate annually in Earth Day to do their part — “everyone accounted for, everyone accountable.”

Use Earth Month as a launchpad to get involved in nature conservation. Plant trees and native plants, help restore wildlife habitats, clean up litter in your community, and more. 

Make small lifestyle changes that benefit the planet.

Sometimes a “zero waste” lifestyle or sustainability journey can seem really out of reach, but the truth is that making sustainability swaps doesn’t have to be difficult or costly! Even a few small changes can make a big difference. Here are a few you can consider this Earth Month:

Choose seasonal produce next time you get groceries.

Set up a carpool — or choose any other car-free mode of transportation.

Try to buy and waste less. And if you do need something, consider investing in mindful eco-friendly (or pre-loved!) products.

Compost your food scraps. 

Last but not least, spend time in the great outdoors as you celebrate this big, blue beauty we call Mother Earth. This is a great way to mitigate anxiety, renew your sense of wonder and hope for the world, and honour the planet in all its glory.
