Zero Emissions Day

September 21, 2021


The purpose of this day is to give our planet a break from fossil fuels and what they release into the air, at least for one day, every year. This encompasses greenhouse gasses, polluting substances, microparticles, and other things that are harming our planet. The importance of Zero Emissions Day is paramount because it aims to encourage the use of renewable energy sources, as opposed to finite fossil fuels.

Zero Emissions Day has turned into a worldwide movement that aims to put the global 24-hour moratorium on the combustion of fossil fuels and everything started in 2008 when the founder Ken Wallace launched a website in Nova Scotia, Canada, calling for September 21st to be a day where no fossil fuels are consumed. The message was pretty simple – “Giving our planet one day off a year” and was translated into 12 languages for easy reach of people. The idea is that everyone gets a ‘rest day’ so why not give our planet rest from emissions and pollution?
