Here in Hawai‘i we know that Earth Day should be celebrated everyday, as we are so fortunate to live in such a special place. However, as this year marks the 50th anniversary of such a landmark event, one that led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, passage of the Clean Air Act, passage of the Clean Water Act (two years later) and passage of the Endangered Species Act (one year later) it’s a good time to put your hands to work and do some good for lā honua (Earth).
