Almost a year. That’s how long Earth had a breather due to the pandemic lockdown, and what a change it briefly experienced. Air quality drastically improved (visible from space!), industrial emissions and noise pollution declined.
You’ve probably seen pictures or videos of wildlife exploring the cities as well. This temporary breather isn’t enough to heal the planet though as it’s gone through decades of human activity.
Welcome, Earth Day. A reminder that protecting the planet still starts with us and here are some tips from the National Ocean Service before we head into Earth Day deals and freebies!
