East Carolina University student organizations such as ECO-Pirates and ReLeaf at ECU, speak on the importance of environmental awareness as today marks Earth Day.
Robert Malpass, Releaf at ECU president, said It’s important to consider every day as if it were to be Earth Day. He said when people volunteer, it creates a sense of awareness for other volunteering opportunities that are available.
ECO-Pirates President Will Shingleton said the community should continue to partake in environmental awareness year-round. He said even minor changes in daily activities can make a significant impact on the earth as a whole.
“To me, I would say Earth Day is important because you’re just practicing mindfulness,” Shingleton said. “You know you’re just realizing that your actions have consequences, whether that’s on a personal scale or on a global scale, and you’re just appreciating what the earth has given us.”
