Each year Earth Month seems to grow in popularity. More and more people are joining this movement, taking note of this important cause and taking responsibility for their actions and their impact on the earth. Along with Earth Month’s growth in popularity, there is a notable influx of fascinating information delivered via resources that can be read, watched, followed, listenened to and supported.

While this abundance of information is good news for our world, it can also be incredibly overwhelming.

So, we at KOOSHOO wanted to put together a handy recap of many of the great things we found this Earth Month, all in one convenient place. (Completely unsponsored…just things we genuinely think are great!)

We’ve linked as much as we can below, so it is accessible and easy to explore. If there are any other great resources you’ve come across, feel free to share them in the comments below!
