“In Malibu, we celebrate, honor, and seek ways to protect our environment 365 days a year,” said Mayor Bruce Silverstein. “The more concentrated period officially designated as ‘Earth Month’ provides an opportunity to shine attention on the importance of our global ecosystem with various events designed to wake up and engage the broader community in the hope that we might collectively work to reverse and repair the ongoing degradation that threatens our precious planet.” 

April 22 marks the 53rd Earth Day, the world’s largest event focused on protecting our planet. All month long during April, the City will host events and post tips on social media about recycling, waste reduction, water conservation, and energy to help the community live sustainably.
