Did you know that pollution is one of the biggest global killers? It affects over 100 million people making it comparable to global diseases like HIV and Malaria. Did you know that over 1 million sea birds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year?

Every year, the Earth Day organization brings awareness to specific environmental problems. This year, they are focusing on Environmental and Climate Literacy, the engine for advancing environment laws and policies. And they want your help! The organization is asking for people to gather with their communities for a Teach-In with Teach-In toolkits you can find on earthday.org

The Earth Day organization is also working on another project – to plant 7.8 billion trees worldwide by 2020. That is one tree for every person. They have already planted 1.2 billion, and one way you can help is by donating one dollar, and in return you receive one tree.
