Earth Day began on April 22, 1970. Eight months later, the Environmental Protection Agency was created. By 1990, Earth Day was celebrated worldwide to raise awareness about eco-friendly practices, pollution, and conservation. Every year has a theme, and this year's is Climate Action. The hope is to raise awareness about climate change and educate people on the opportunities available for them to help out.
And helping out can come in many forms. It could be changing your consumption habits, being more aware of recycling and separating your trash, or even just choosing to ride a bike or walk instead of driving. It can also come in the form of commodities, the things you surround yourself with that you may not think about on a daily basis. With that said, we've rounded up our favorite eco-friendly products that'll help keep our planet clean -- and maybe your conscience as well.
