WASHINGTON, DC — Earth Day Network, the global organizer of Earth Day, announces Indian actress Juhi Chawla as an Earth Day Network Ambassador in India.

In her remarks, Chawla said: “As an Earth Day Network Ambassador, I will lend my voice to encourage people, in particular my many well-wishers, to contribute their part for a cleaner, greener and less-polluted Earth. The current pandemic is proof that we cannot continue denigrating the planet. It is now time to ‘Restore Our Earth,’ the ongoing Earth Day Network theme, which I think is so apt to focus efforts on. I am a committed environmentalist and will continue to do my bit by promoting chemical-free farming, working to get sports stadiums go single-use plastic free, and more.”
