Earth Day 2016

Earth  Day 2016, will be celebrated on Friday  April 23rd.

One of the marks of Mission of the Anglicans articulates protection of the environment. Past years Climate  Change and Global Warming were    emphasized.

Air  pollution is a major problem, over the next five years, as Earth Day moves  to its 50th anniversary, everyone is being called to participate in the ambitious goal of planting 7.8 billion trees.

Trees will be the first of five major goals , in honor of the five-year countdown to the 50th anniversary. This initiative will make a significant and measurable impact on the Earth and will serve as the foundation of a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable planet for all.

Trees help combat climate change.
They absorb excess and harmful CO2 from our atmosphere. In fact, in a single year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced by driving the average car 26,000 miles.

Trees help us breathe clean air.
Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.

Trees help communities.
Trees help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability and provide food, energy and income.
