It’s Earth Day on April 22. This is the day designated by the United Nations for celebrating Mother Earth and recommitting to protecting the small planet on which we live.
Since the first Earth Day in the USA in 1970, many important environmental events have happened on Earth Day – including the recent signing of the Paris Agreement.
This year, the Biden Administration will convene a global climate summit on Earth Day 2021. In this way, Earth Day continues to be a momentous and unifying day each and every year.
These coloring pages are a great way to raise your children’s awareness about the day, using one of the world’s most sustainable products – paper!
