April 22nd, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the Earth Day.
Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson came up with the idea for a national day to focus on the environment after Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, witnessed the ravages of a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, in 1969.
That led to an awakening, and subsequently the US passed the Clean Air Act (1970), Clean Water Act (1972) and the Endangered Species Act (1973). (Learn more )
Last year OASIS started a National Initiative – Your Planet Matters. This initiative focuses on all we can do our best to preserve the Earth for our future generations.
We would like your support and commitment to keep the momentum going.
Today, to commemorate the Earth Day, we are sharing what we have already done thus far and will share more information below on Why, What and How we all can make a difference – starting now!
AT&T leadership supports OASIS and Your Planet Matters and they want to share what we can all do to support Your Planet Matters.

You should be worried. Really.
A few months ago a story made the news – evidently we eat enough plastic in a week the size of a credit card! Unbelievable? Try this….
What is Zero Waste?
Kind of looks like the picture above. That’s their family’s (family of four) entire year’s garbage. Really!! Learn more here!
Wasting food? Not on our watch!
Now that most of us (at least some of us) are cooking more at home, we also tend to have a lot more food scraps or food almost going bad because of that large Costco sized pack we have? Check these out and waste no more!
Keep Checking back – We will be adding more resources.
