The E campaign is designed to give Earth Day a fresh face, draw new people into the environmental movement and inspire everyone to take positive action for the planet every day in a variety of ways.
The E campaign creates the opportunity for individuals like you to speak out about what you are doing to take positive action for the Earth and will highlight choices made by all kinds of people to live greener, cleaner, and more sustainable lifestyles.
The goals of the E campaign are to encourage environmental actions and create a lasting legacy: a tangible sense of community and hope, a shared vision of a more sustainable future and a clear understanding that we are not alone. It is time to rekindle the idea that we are all part of a powerful movement that can really make a difference. Be the E.
