Earth Day 2020 Message from Whatcom County Executive Satpal Sidhu

“As we celebrate Earth Day during this pandemic, I am thinking about our collective responsibility to take personal actions, sometime inconvenient actions, to make the world a better place. This is true for both our public health and for our environmental health.”
“I am proud of the people of Whatcom County for continuing to do such a good job in stopping the spread of COVID-19. And today, the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day celebration, I am encouraging you to also consider what small steps you might take to improve our environment, to limit our energy and resource consumption, and to halt our contribution to climate change.”
“Collective responsibility and our community acting as one will get us through this pandemic, and these very same things will be necessary to address our common environmental challenges.”
“Let's not ever forget that we should leave the world a better place than we found it—for our grandchildren, and their grandchildren.”
