Earth Day is coming up on Sunday, April 22!
Did you know that Earth Day was established in 1970, is celebrated in 192 countries and is the biggest day of civic action in the world with over 1 billion people participating annually? Become one of them! Earth Day is organized by Earth Day Network, an organization dedicated to diversifying, educating and activating people globally for environmental stewardship. The organization coordinates a series of international events to bring awareness and encourage Acts of Green.
Thousands of other organizations and millions more individuals take their own actions on Earth Day to be good environmental stewards.

We rely on the support of people like you to advance good environmental stewardship initiatives at the state and local level and for the 2019 legislative session. But this important work can only happen with your support.
Action Utah and environmental stewardship
Did you know that Action Utah was responsible for creating two out of seven of the clean air bills during the 2018 State Legislative Session? That’s right – HB 479 Zero Emission Vehicle Program bill (Rep. Eliason) and HCR 9 Concurrent Resolution Supporting Rural Development of Wind, Solar and Geothermal Energy (Rep. Arent) came directly from us.
We also drafted and passed HCR 7 Concurrent Resolution on Environmental and Economic Stewardship — the second climate change resolution ever to pass in a red state. We’ll see you at the Governor’s signing ceremony in May!
Most importantly, we track environmental stewardship initiatives throughout the legislative session beyond and bring you information and opportunities so YOU can make a difference in your community.
We intend to help you make a big impact on environmental stewardship issues once again in 2019, and already have three bills already underway. But this important work can only happen with your support. Can you help us for Earth Day ?
