Around the world, Earth Day is celebrated April 22. This year – 2020 – marks the 50th year of celebrating Earth Day.
Climate change is a significant energy and environmental challenge. As an employee in the energy industry, recognizing the impact of our actions and protecting our planet are ever-present themes. I’m proud of the work that Dominion Energy does on a daily basis to put environmental stewardship on the forefront of the business. Investing in renewables is one area that I’m particularly excited about; more on that in a future blog post.
On a personal level, Earth Day is a good opportunity for me to think in a focused way about conservation. My family recently switched to LED light bulbs, and this has me brainstorming additional ways we can work together to take small steps that will add in up a big way.
Dominion Energy shared a few fun ideas here on how to honor Earth Day this year with children. I may have to try a few of these out with my kids this week!
