This year Earth Day was April 22, and Channel One spent a whole week celebrating the environment. We talked about things like switching to a sustainable lifestyle, the greenest cities in the U.S., and how to choose a career that makes the world a better place.
We also got lots of submissions from our viewers showing us the ways that your school or classroom made an impact on Earth Day. From creative trash cleanup to planting lots of greenery, you all did an amazing job changing the world around you. Check out the slideshow of your pictures below!
