    Earth Day is a time to reflect on the incredible planet we call home and our responsibility to protect it. This year, let's celebrate Earth Day, April 22nd, 2024, in a meaningful way by making a positive impact on our environment. How? By choosing to walk or roll for Earth Day!

    • Step Lightly: Walking is a simple yet powerful way to reduce our carbon footprint. Lace-up your walking shoes and take a stroll through your neighborhood, a nearby park, or even to work or school. Every step you take helps to lessen the burden on our beautiful planet.

    • Pedal for a Greener Future: Hop on your bikes and pedal your way to a cleaner, greener world. Cycling is not only great for the environment, but it also boosts your health and well-being. Feel the wind in your hair as you ride, knowing that each pedal stroke is a step towards a more sustainable future.

    • Less Emissions, More Fresh Air: By choosing to walk or ride bikes, we can reduce harmful emissions that contribute to air pollution and climate change. Let's fill the air with fresh, clean oxygen instead of pollutants that harm the planet and our health.

    • Connect with Nature: Walking and rolling allows us to connect with nature on a deeper level. As you move through your surroundings at a slower pace, take the time to appreciate the beauty of the world around you. It's a chance to bond with the Earth and be grateful for its wonders.

    • Inspire Change: When you walk or roll, you become a role model for others. Your actions inspire friends, family, and community members to consider more sustainable transportation options. Together, we can create a ripple effect of positive change.

    • Safe and Fun Activities: Walking and rolling are not just eco-friendly; they are safe and enjoyable activities for people of all ages. Whether you're young or young at heart, Earth Day is an excellent time to rediscover the joy of walking or rolling.

    • A Promise to the Earth: On this special day, let's make a promise to our planet that we'll continue to walk or roll whenever possible. It's a commitment to preserving Earth for future generations and leaving a lasting legacy of sustainability.

    • Together, We Make a Difference: Every step and every pedal counts! When we come together as a global community, our collective efforts can bring about significant positive change for the environment.

    This Earth Day, let's take action and make a conscious choice to walk or roll. It's a small step for us, but a giant leap for the Earth. Join the movement and be a part of something truly impactful for our planet's future! Graphics and posters available on the Oregon Safe Routes website.
