Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world, but participating only requires one small act:

To celebrate and protect our earth, the Greenbelt Foundation invites our friends and friends of friends to #Pick5toThrive!

How #Pick5toThrive works:

  1. Participate in a community or individual Earth Month clean up activity
  2. Take a photo or make a video – share your clean up on social!
  3. Nominate and tag 5 friends on social media to do the same

Are you up for the challenge? Join us in the movement towards a healthier, thriving planet.
