Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Earth Day

“Earth Day is a time to appreciate the beauty of the planet we call home, and a time to reflect on our mandate to clean the air we breathe, protect the water we drink, and preserve the health of the world we share with all of creation. That's why our Sustainable City pLAn embraces environmental stewardship and justice as fundamental values that we fight for in Los Angeles — that’s why we’re going to to keep fighting climate change by making our utility coal-free by 2025, restoring our river to its natural habitat, and working to open up more green space where our families can connect with nature.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
