Earth Day is now a global event each year, and we believe that more than 1 billion people in 192 countries join the efforts.  Many across Alabama are planting trees today, or cleaning up their towns and roads. Local businesses and Tuscaloosa leaders use it to make pledges and announce sustainability measures. Spiritual leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on. #EarthDay #WildBillShow
