Earth Day focuses on the importance of the health of our environment. It celebrates the progress made to protect the planet and explores new venues to safeguard our natural resources. Delray boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It’s up to us to ensure our sandy shores are protected from harmful debris and waste.
