Earth Day 2021 in the United States is on Thursday, April 22. More than a half-century ago, 20 million Americans created an environmental movement that led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.
According to the Earth Day Organization
, the movement didn't stop in the 21st Century. In fact, the cause continues today and has led to the creation of many environmental laws. Including preventing excessive air pollution via the Clean Air Act and sustaining wildlife through the Endangered Species Act.
Congressional efforts from Washington D.C. like the Clean Water Act and our Paris Agreement renewal with the United Nations focus on protecting our planet. These two examples are just a few recent, Earth-focused causes.
Do you recycle every chance you get? Maybe your friends call you a "tree-hugger?" How are you helping to restore our Earth?

Go Green & Get Green: Eco & Environmental Scholarships, Internships & Activities
The scholarship application world is nearly 100 percent digital today. There was a time when gigantic scholarship reference books were printed and used. These reference books were available for purchase by parents and students until the early 2,000's.
As you can imagine, they were not sustainable or environmentally friendly; the scholarship books were outdated quickly. Also, they were HUGE; most more than 4,000 pages. Using this much paper was not a green choice.
Fastweb was one of the first
digital scholarship databases for students and parents to use. We're proud to have made the tree-wrecking scholarship books a thing of the past.
