Forty-four years ago today began the annual celebration on Earth Day. On this day millions pay tribute on raising awareness around the increased need in protection of the environment and appreciation for Earth. Around the globe you will find communities planting trees, conducting programs to increase recycling or simply picking up trash along the roadsides. It is a day where one large group - who believes in the preservation of our planet, can make an impact.
In honor of Earth Day this year, we thought it would be nice to mention some of the many online sustainable programs that are now available through the campuses at UMass.
