How The Disney Parks Celebrate Earth Day Today and All Year Round
Admittedly it is a rather subdued Earth Day but a momentous one nonetheless. Today we are celebrating 50 years of this fantastic day where we recognize and pay tribute to this amazing planet we live on.
Each year, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the go-to spot for Earth Day celebrations. However, this year, we’ll celebrate from our living rooms or back gardens. But don’t worry. Disney is there celebrating right along with us. Just check out this video:
This year Disney is celebrating nearly 3 decades of environment and sustainability initiatives. This includes implementing programs to support a reduction of waste and emissions as well as water and resource conservation. As part of Disney’s ongoing commitment to the environment and conservation, the company is always exploring and implementing new ways to promote sustainability.
As you can see from these awesome infographics, the efforts have meant that Disney has made incredible progress toward conserving natural resources and protecting the magic of nature for generations to come.
This year also marks the 25th Anniversary of the Disney Conservation Fund who works tirelessly in lending support to nonprofit organizations around the world in their efforts to save wildlife, inspire advocacy and protect the planet.
As we mentioned earlier this week at MickeyBlog, National Geographic recently launched NatGeo@Home. This invaluable resource was designed to help families stay connected to the outside world even while in quarantine. Here you’ll find FREE educational resources and content designed to help parents and educators while schools are closed.
A highlight of NatGeo@Home is the neighborhood safari which invites families to design their own ‘safari stop’ using resources available at NatGeo@Home and a little help from Disney Animation, Pixar and Marvel Studios.
Today and every day, its important to celebrate the wonders of the earth, and on this day, its awesome to see Disney taking steps to use the magic of nature can bring us all together during the times when we need it most.
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog today for more awesome ways to celebrate Earth Day- Disney-style.
