How Do You Protect Your Environment?

In anticipation of Earth Day, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on March 23 launched an interactive video and photo project asking the public to share the ways they enjoy and protect their environment.

These projects are part of EPA's multi-event celebration of Earth Month and of the agency's 39 year history — which will highlight the agency's renewed commitment to protecting human health and the environment.

EPA is asking filmmakers and photographers around the world to submit their own videos and photos documenting what steps they take to protect the water they drink, the air they breathe, and the overall environmental health of their communities.

Participants can submit video entries on YouTube. Photo entries should be submitted via Flickr.

Categories in the video project are:

  • Reducing your carbon footprint
  • Conserving and protecting water
  • Protecting the environment
  • Reduce, reuse, recycle

Categories in the photo project are:

  • People and the environment
  • The beauty of nature
  • Wildlife

EPA officials will select videos and photos to feature on the Web site throughout April. The agency will accept videos and photos through the end of April.
