Earth Day 2023: Invest in the Planet, Invest in Your Future

Happy Earth Day from the Cousteau Society!

“For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.”

– Jacques-Yves Cousteau

This year’s Earth Day theme is “Invest in Our Planet,” and for 50 years, the Cousteau Society has worked to protect this planet we call home. By investing in and taking mindful steps to preserve Earth’s valuable and finite resources we rely on to survive, we are also investing in our own future and survival.

The Earth gives us so much every day, from the air that we breathe to the food that sustains us, we are dependent on a healthy planet for our own survival. Every investment we make in maintaining a healthy planet is an investment we make in ourselves and our own health and future success as well. 

Although there are many threats facing our planet, it is not too late for us to join together and commit to investing in our collective future.  Choose one, or all, of the “Easy Ways to Invest in Our Planet” outlined below, because a healthy planet Earth will return your investment time and time again.
