Earth Day This year’s Earth Day theme was “A Billion Acts of Green®,” and that is exactly how we kicked off the celebration in local communities.

On April 21, members of our Rogers Corporation team joined together for a clean-up of our local streets at the Rogers and Woodstock, Connecticut locations.  This year was extra special as Easter was just around the corner, and participants found Easter eggs along the way with great prizes hidden inside.

Earth Day may come just once a year, but it should be celebrated every day!  The Earth Day Network reminds us that “real change occurs best when millions of people commit to it with their actions.”  Every effort to help the environment, no matter how small, is important.

Here are some tips we learned from our Earth Day celebration to make any clean up event “greener” and more fun:

  • Participants picking up trash received reusable shopping bags, a great reminder to keep a few in your car for shopping trips.
  • Rather than driving to a location for Earth Day, participants cleaned up their local streets and parks.
  • We had a great time searching for Easter eggs along the way!  Having fun going green with rewards and challenges encourages sustainable change.

To date, A Billion Acts of Green has reported over 45 million acts, both great and small.  Our team is working to take these acts to one billion and beyond!

Today’s environmental challenges mean we all need to get serious about doing what it takes to enable clean energy for a greener planet. This takes many forms when it comes to making the materials that give our world its shape. For instance, power distribution systems can  make wind and solar energy technologies more reliable and efficient. Cushioning products can provide critical vibration protection for batteries in hybrid electric vehicles.
