Local and Global Impact

183 local individuals, businesses, and groups have received Earth Day Awards from Kitsap County Public Works since 1993.

The first Earth Day began in 1970 and is credited with launching the modern environmental movement which led to landmark environmental laws, including the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. This year, on Earth Day's 51st anniversary, the world turns its attention toward climate change with the global climate summit.
