All our favorite Earth Day moments celebrating energy efficiency


Earth Day 2022 may have come and gone already, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all savor the great conversations and amazing insights the day brought us both in person and across social media, especially those on our very favorite topic: How energy efficiency can help us get to that cleaner, greener, more sustainable world that much faster.

So, we admit a certain soft spot in our hearts for the associations around the U.S. working hard on this sustainability equation every single day. Here are a few of our top picks for Earth Day shout outs on Twitter, because we want you to enjoy these warm moments over and over again—which may be the best reuse/recycling thought we’ve had since April 22.
