4 Ways to Help on Earth Day 2022

by Coco Veda Team April 18, 2022

Earth Day is commemorated every year on April 22. It is an environmental movement that aims to raise awareness about pollution and ways to maintain a clean habitat. In recent years, the world has been experiencing more and more calamities brought about by climate change. There has been an increased number of floods, typhoons, droughts and other catastrophic events. The intensity of this problem is further highlighted as recently over 1000 scientists from 25 different countries protested after the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s new report. The protest was to stress on the urgency and injustice of the climate and ecological crisis with an IPCC report stating that the world only has 3 years to mitigate the worst of climate change. Hence, Earth Day 2022 is very crucial for us to participate in to make as much impact to heal our planet.


Most of us have heard about Earth Day. However, do you know why we celebrate this day? This day was first observed after a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California in 1969. It was the largest oil spill in United States waters by that time. The spill had devastating effects on marine life, killing an estimated 3,500 sea birds, and marine animals such as dolphins, elephant seals , and sea lions. As a result of this catastrophic event, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson rallied national support for environmental protection and safer industrial regulations. Earth Day then led to the foundation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act. In 1990, Earth Day garnered more recognition with over 200 million people participating in 141 countries. The success of the movement increased worldwide recycling efforts and led to the formation of the United Nations Earth Summit in 1992.

The theme for this year’s Earth Day is to “Invest in our Planet”. This is a collective effort and we need to unite in order to save the Earth. We need to take concrete steps to restore nature and live more sustainable lives to ensure that our planet stays habitable for the next generations to come. If you are eager to help but you are unsure how, we have collated a list of activities and organisations you can support in Singapore for Earth Day 2022.
