About Earth Day Slogans Evolve Each Birthday Hour With Campaigns To Save Our Planet
Plastics Must Be Banned or Recycled
April 22, 2014 EarthDay Celebration
Dear Environmental Friends. I have been lax in updating this Hub article on a very special calendar date. April 22, 2014. In the meantime, I've been busy with other projects, as EARTH DAY draws near. The video above is my contribution to REAWAKENING the world to our behaviors, habits and addictions to throw away trash and plastic items.
I hope this will make you think about the world in which we live. I hope the video above will make you think about life and death and how we contribute to the death of species on the planet.
2014 EARTH DAY SLOGAN --- GREEN CITIES
Every year on April 22, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day. From San Francisco to San Juan, Beijing to Brussels, Moscow to Marrakesh, people plant trees, clean up their communities, contact their elected officials, and more—all on behalf of the environment.
Like Earth Days of the past, Earth Day 2014 will focus on the unique environmental challenges of our time. As the world’s population migrates to cities, and as the bleak reality of climate change becomes increasingly clear, the need to create sustainable communities is more important than ever. Earth Day 2014 will seek to do just that through its global theme: Green Cities. With smart investments in sustainable technology, forward-thinking public policy, and an educated and active public, we can transform our cities and forge a sustainable future. Nothing is more powerful than the collective action of a billion people.
Officially, I believe the slogan for Earth Day 2013 is "The Face Of Climate Change" indicating that each one of the inhabitants on this planet must paint in their own face on the picture. Each one of us must stare in the mirror and look at our own face to find the meaning behind this day. We must live with our self, with our thoughts, with what we say and with our actions. If we have become corrupt, ill of health, with infirmed relationships with others, then we see the face in the climate of our day. Today is the day to change the climate.
Climate refers to atmospheric conditions and changes locally, regionally and globally. Climate tells us the tone and tenor of our world view. Are we on the planet to improve the climate for the better? It takes fortitude and will to overcome negative forces within ourselves and from outside influences. Standing together we gain strength. Today is the day to stand together.
UNESCO linked Gender Equality and Earth Day as part and parcel with the realization that women have been mistreated around the world, relegated to items to be bought and sold like slaves or cattle and provided unequal treatment and accessibility to an education or basic survival needs. Today is the day that we speak out!
- All eyes turn to India, where the rape of one young woman created a wave of outrage! In China, where 1/5 of the world's female population live (640 million women and girls), can potentially improve the state of the world's climate through their voice and action; or succumb to the world's demise as carbon emission's soar to new heights. Today is the day for women to band together!
The clock ticks down to another earth day celebration. We passed the Mayan Calendar cycle of events and warnings. The predictions for tremendous disasters took place in the year 2012 and into the beginning of 2013. We don't see the momentum slowing down.
Tsunamis, flooding, ice and snowstorms, nuclear explosions and radiation contamination, oil spills, volcano eruptions, tornadoes and hurricanes. The evidence has gone planetary with meteors streaking through the atmosphere. Even though economic challenges loom near daily, we must also pay attention to the effects on our lives from impending natural changes and man-made changes. Today is the day to take heed to nature's signposts.
If we can make one little contribution to improve conditions, then we must take action. Taking stock of our lives and how we all contribute to the whole universe and relationship of the planets. You will hear these days of conscious living require us to take a part in our future.
The 2012 slogan, "The Earth Won't Wait" implies the time to act is running out. We cannot push aside or put aside the disasters, destruction, and poisoning that we learn about every day. But, we can still have hope, if we act now!
- The power of everyone together has been proven with #StopSopa
What will happen next? It all depends upon us, every one of us. I've heard my friend say the children have misplaced their priority. They are being taught that the planet takes precedence over human life. She tells me they learn the whales, dolphins and other life must be cared for with disregard of the humans, who do not have as much right to live on the planet. She's afraid. I don't know if these concepts and ideas are getting out only in the United States or have been spreading globally.
I believe all living creatures are sacred, but with wisdom, understanding of the repercussions of our actions, the destruction of the planet as we know it has already begun. All of the natural disasters continue to cause further destruction and disperse pollutants, radiation and cause erosion of fertile lands.
If we use natural products in our buildings, as nutritional organic foods to enhance our internal environment, and utilize the available natural sustainable sources of energy we can truly make this world a better place. The ideas can be found in the slogans below. Only we can make them come to life when we live by those words. Make Earth Day Every Day in our lives.

LIGHTS OUT FOR ONE HOUR BECOMES AN ANNUAL EVENT
This Global Event occurs during the month of the EarthDay Celebration. People turn off their lights and let the stars shine in the sky. Each year this event is recorded with celebrations and hoopla, while circling satellites snap photos. The spectacular darkening of the Blue Market can be seen on video and in still shots.

The idea is to do something positive, make a statement, get involved with others at local, regional, national and international levels. They've been building social awareness about energy conservation.

Retro for 2010 EarthDay
"We Are The World" has come back as a theme for 2010. It started with the Haiti Earthquake and helping our fellow human beings recover from grave disaster. A Disney throw back to the "Bambi" character, honoring Walt Disney, focusing on our connection to nature in the oceans, forests, and where ever animals inhabit the earth will open in theaters near you.
Our attention spans do not last for a very long time and it is necessary for marketing agents to constantly refresh old ideas and tweak the message.
This year's Missouri theme is "100 Years of Missouri State Parks" searching for a slogan that relates to Missouri State Parks. Missouri 5th grade students need to put on their thinking caps and ask your teachers to submit your slogans to the state. The winner will be our special guest during Earth Day 2016 and will receive a proclamation from our governor, a gift card and a Missouri Rock and Mineral set. Your teacher also will win something special.

What’s a slogan?
Slogans are phrases that help people key in to the theme and major concept of an organization, candidate, campaign. Sometimes the slogan is called a motto.
These Key Phrases are used repeatedly by supporters to ingrain the message into the media and their audience. It makes the product, candidate, organization or campaign memorable. It's kind of like a 'jingle' that repeats in your head after you sing the notes.
Since EarthDay 2009, I've become more active in creating awareness of EarthDay and environmentalism. Social networking has made that possible.
I've actually begun turning the lights off in every room of the house when I walk out in order to save a few cents, which I can contribute to a good cause. I personally feel better about myself while saving valuable resources.

Evaluating The Slogans
- Go back and look over the slogans. They have to be meaningful to everyone. There are a number of them that fall into a sub-category. They may talk about a part of the environment - the trees, water, waste, air, land. They may talk about our habit patterns. They make be action oriented or passive. They could also be geared toward the negative aspect or positive aspect of how we act or the results of our actions.
- Does it make you Stop and Think? I had to think about "Phone First." What does that mean to me? To change my driving habits. Does it catch your attention?
- Rhythm: These are all things to think about when making your selection. Does the slogan have a melodious sound. Would you like to hear it said over and over again?
- Global reach: Does the slogan apply to a large region, countries, people in a meaningful way?
- Length: Is it short and pithy or will a lengthy phrase do?
- Comments: Please comment below if you think of other good criteria to judge the slogan.

Slogans Are Marketed On Many Specialty Items
Even Grocery Bags! Just look at the Earth Day Groceries Project
Whether they are slick and professional or primitive and childlike, slogans make an impact. The Earth Day Groceries Project is an easy, cost-free environmental awareness project that teams up youth and grocers to spread the message of Earth Day. To participate, teachers simply borrow paper grocery bags from a local grocery store. Students decorate the bags with environmental messages about reuse, recycling, wildlife, etc. The bags are then returned to the grocery store, and on Earth Day, April 22 of each year, customers receive their groceries— along with the message that kids care about our environment— in the decorated bags.
How about this one?
