Earth Day more than just a day for the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society

April 22nd is Earth Day, highlighting the environment and how to protect it for future generations.

Over the years, awareness to protect the world have gone beyond just the one day, with various organizations such as the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society giving tips on how to do so.

Program Coordinator, Dani Gastaldello says the efforts have brought tremendous growth.

“Earth Day originated from 1969 when the U.S Senator at the time was appalled by the affects caused by the Santa Barbara oil spill, and wanted to infuse some energy into the emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution.” says Gastaldello.

“In 54 years, it’s a global network that empowers people to better understand and to better protect the environment, and the world around us.”

Gastaldello added that the day is now commonly coined as “Earth Day everyday” on social media through hashtags and other ways.

She says efforts to protect the environment shouldn’t just be for the one day, as reduce, reuse, recycle and even repairing can make a big difference every day.

This year, the society will be doing a repair café on April 27th, at the inspired builders market to promote the reuse and repair initiative.
