Earth Month Olympia was founded on Earth Day 2015 with a pledge to cancel Earth Day 2016 in our city – because one day is not enough.
We observed that many holidays, celebrations and regional professional sports teams are hyper- promoted, persisting for weeks and even months every year. We felt that the well-being of our planet is more worthy of engagement than what typically gets attention in our daily lives. Some folks say “Every day is Earth Day,” and we agree that should be the case, but without a special focus, that approach dilutes the opportunity for Earth awareness to rise above the din of everything clamoring for our attention throughout the calendar year.
Let’s welcome the spring and celebrate Earth Month!
