Earth Day Turns 50: Consumer Celebrations and Attitudes During COVID-19

In celebration of Earth Day turning 50 on April 22nd, ENGINE Insights surveyed Americans about their plans to participate in virtual Earth Day activities in the age of COVID-19, and the impact the pandemic has had not only on their daily activities – but also their thoughts about protecting the earth.

The ENGINE Insights survey reveals that 56% of Americans plan to participate in at least one of the official digital Earth Day events. That number is even higher among the younger generations – 78% of Gen Zs and 72% of Millennials say they will participate in at least one of the planned events hosted by the Earth Day Network.

Key findings from the survey include the impact of COVID-19 on Americans’ feelings about climate change and engaging in outdoor activities. Additionally, there are findings on recycling and shopping compared to last year’s ENGINE Insights Earth Day survey.

Check out all the findings in the Infographic below – Happy Earth Day!
