Commit to Protect the Environment
Why Commitment Is Important
On Earth Day, EPA reaches out to people of every age, race, and economic status to "own" the environment, to commit to environmental protection as one of your top priorities.
Why is this important? Because many people don’t see “environmentalism” as an important issue in their lives. When actually having clean air to breathe, water to drink, and a neighborhood safe from toxics is important to ALL of us!
