Earth Day, an event with a history that dates back to 1969 and the devastating oil spill in Santa Barbara Channel, is now an event celebrated worldwide. Marking more than 50 years of increasing awareness and education, Earth Day is a call to action.
Where have we been, where are we now, and where, as a species, are we going are questions the team at Maps.com focuses on daily.
To raise awareness and acknowledge the impact of humans’ lifestyle on climate, Maps.com has developed several infographics — Why Scientists Study Icebergs, Why Does Renewable Energy Matter; and a poster Antarctic Iceberg Tracks 1977-2017 — to raise awareness of the impact of climate change on the environment.
“A core MAPS.COM value is making the world a better place. One of the keys to accomplishing that value is through our Earth Day efforts, which MAPS.COM has participated in since its founding here in Santa Barbara in 1991,” said John Glanville, CEO/president of MAPS.COM.
“MAPS.COM is an active participant in local and international Earth Day events, including sponsorship of the Community Environmental Council Earth Day 2021 events,” he said. (https://cecsb.org/events/cecs-2021-virtual-earth-day-festival)
As part of its effort to educate and inform the community and the public at large about the impact of climate change, Maps.com has a dedicated Earth Day page on its web site https://www.maps.com/pages/earth-day-2021.
MAPS.COM also provides downloadable maps and infographics with topics relevant to today’s Earth Day theme of “Restore Our Earth”. (maps and infographics included with this release).
MAPS.COM also raises Earth Day awareness through its active involvement with thousands of schools across the United States. MAPS.COM publishes the weekly Geography News Network, providing current topical information to students, teachers, parents, and those with an urge to learn, all with the perspective of where.
Once again, MAPS.COM is participating with its TWO PERCENT to the GOOD program that supports environmental and education efforts locally.
“It’s one thing to talk the talk, and quite another to walk the walk,” said Glanville. “I am proud to say we have 100% involvement of the team at MAPS.COM in causes to protect the environment and raise awareness of climate change.”
This Earth Day 2021, MAPS.COM is providing a free downloadable version of Antarctic Iceberg Map 1977-2017, along with two infographics, Icebergs and Why Renewable Energy Matters on its dedicated Earth Day 2021 page.
Maps are one of the best ways to understand the world, environment and climate. MAPS.COM encourages everyone to participate in Earth Day this year in finding a personal way to help restore the planet.
