Take the Earth Day 2020 Pledge. The United Nations says we need to reduce emissions by 7% a year over the next 10 years to avert severe climate consequences.
Steps to taking the Earth Day 2020 Pledge:
- Calculate your carbon footprint.
- Reduce your impact.
- Offset the rest. Here are two options: Terrapass or Gold Standard.
- Tell us what you did through the “contact us” button on this page.
- Hug your children, nieces and nephews.

Take the pledge to be an environmental voter in 2020. Vote on March 3rd in the Massachusetts Presidential Primary. Then vote in the general election – Tuesday, November 3rd. Send a strong message that action on climate must happen this year. 2020 is the year to declare a climate emergency.
