Take Action: A Billion Acts of Green | Earth Day Network

A Billion Acts of Green

The biggest lesson from the first Earth Day: When we come together, the impact can be monumental. Go green with us by making small changes that add up to making a big difference. Commit to earth-friendly acts, make more sustainable choices, reduce your carbon footprint, conserve energy and resources, collaborate on environmental projects in your community, vote for leaders committed to protect us and the environment, and share your acts of green to help educate and inspire others to join our movement! Start protecting our environment today and help us create a healthy, more sustainable future.

For our 50th Anniversary in 2020, we’re hoping to reach 3 billion acts of green. Together we’ve reached 2,688,209,868 acts of green. Let’s keep it up: Commit to your own act of green!

More ways to take action are below.


  • Make Your Own Act of Green
    We need your help and your personal action. Please engage our campaign by creating your own Act of Green, and help us reach 3 billion Acts of Green by our 50th Anniversary in 2020.
