Most Americans say they’ve done their part to help clean up the environment, but far fewer see Earth Day – celebrated annually on April 22 – as a motivating factor.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 65% of American Adults have volunteered their time or donated money to help clean up the environment. That’s up from 61% a year ago and the highest finding in several years of annual surveying. Twenty-eight percent (28%) have not contributed time or money to green efforts.
