Earth Day 2014 is Tuesday, April 22. It is an important day in the environmental community, and rightly so. Here at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) we like to say that it’s “Earth Day” each of the 365 days of the year because protecting the environment, public health, and our natural resources and building a clean energy economy is our every day mission and our passion.

Here at MassDEP, we also like to take special recognition of Earth Day, and we use the whole month of April to celebrate – an “Earth Month,” if you will. To mark Earth Month 2014, we will be soliciting information about community Earth Day events from across the Commonwealth and publishing that information in our Earth Month 2014 Calendar listed on our web site pdf format of Calendar of Earth Day Events Across Massachusetts
.

We will also post regular tweets on our @MassDEP Twitter site that focus on MassDEP’s environmental success stories. It will also include tips on ways individuals and businesses can increase recycling, decrease carbon footprints, and protect our air and water resources. So, please follow us on Twitter and check out our informative and entertaining Earth Month tweets!

Warmly,


David Cash
MassDEP Commissioner
