to learn more about important events like this.
Drive Electric Earth Day events offer a perfect opportunity to meet with knowledgeable owners of electric vehicles and hear the real pros and cons of ownership. You can go for test drives and maybe even get to experience driving one of these

Did you participate in Drive Electric Earth Day this year?

According to
Electrek
, the Electric Vehicle Association, Plug-in America, and the Sierra Club worked together to sponsor this year's events. 
It was a true Earth Day event, with events scheduled across the Earth on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Oahu, New Zealand, and Canada. However, the vast majority took place right here in the U.S.
Unlike the last couple of years, where most events were virtual, the majority of
Drive Electric Earth Day
participants this year returned to in-person events at outdoor venues.
