  3. Earth Day – Earth Day has officially turned 50 years old in 2020.
  4. In order to prevent abuse and pollution, the Whanganui river in New Zealand has the same legal rights as a person.

  1. The Earth Shot prize was created by Kate and William (yes, the British Royalty) to provide funding to visionaries who are working on solving environmental issues.
  2. H&M Launched a clothes rental initiative, hoping to help people reuse their clothes rather than throwing it out.
  3. Engineers have created workout gear that turns your workout into energy. A 30 minute bike ride generates between 50 an 150 watts.
