BAPS Charities goes green for Earth Day

CHINO HILLS, CA: Earth Day is a global annual event aimed at preserving the environment by promoting green initiatives. Since the first gathering, in 1970, Earth Day Network (EDN) has gathered more than 1 billion people to take part in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. Volunteers around the world gather locally to plant trees, recycle, and spread the word about Earth Day’s significance.
This year, BAPS Charities volunteers from Chino Hills, CA, participated in a local tree-planting event at the Veteran’s Park on Chino Hills Parkway. BAPS Charities youth volunteers planted approximately 25 trees of four different types: Elderica pines, Eastern redbud, Cinnamon camphor, and Liquidambar. “Today was a huge success, we planted a good number of trees” said Mike Curtiss, the Landscaping Inspector for City of Chino Hills. “Thanks to the great turnout of volunteers from the girl scout and BAPS Charities, we were able to accomplish a lot.”
In an effort to go beyond the 24-hours dedicated to Earth Day, the BAPS center in Chino Hills utilizes green energy from solar panels which results in a carbon footprint offset of approximately 1,220,000 pounds of CO2 per year. Additionally, BAPS centers are continuously finding new ways to creatively harness cutting edge environmental designs and materials in their activities. Currently, many facilities utilize power saving fiber optics, LED lighting and management practices to ensure energy consumption is both optimal and efficient.
Every year, BAPS Charities participates in events like Earth Day to offer individuals and families an opportunity to spend time improving the environment of their community, making it safer and healthier for generations to come. Globally, BAPS has recycled over 10,000 tons of paper and 7 million aluminum cans, planted 1.5 million trees and conducted 497 rainwater-harvesting projects. These efforts highlight the necessity of making every effort to conserve our planet’s precious resources.
