- PURE ETCR supports partner EARTHDAY.ORG - Active participation in reforestation programme, ‘The Canopy Project’ - PURE ETCR community to take part in Great Global Clean-up -
The world’s first all-electric, multi-brand touring car championship, PURE ETCR, is supporting the 51st annual Earth Day today with a set of activities throughout the day and beyond.
Recently, a partnership was established between PURE ETCR and EARTHDAY.ORG, which seeks to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement globally.
More than one billion people in 192 countries support Earth Day activities annually, making it the world’s largest civic observance, and this year PURE ETCR is inviting fans of touring car racing to join together and help further climate action all over the planet.
To mark the 51st Earth Day, a list of 51 actions and tips to make a difference has been released, showing people around the world how they can help in the push towards a cleaner and more sustainable future.
Today (April 22), the PURE ETCR community is participating in numerous Earth Day events globally, including local clean-ups, plogging (litter picking while jogging) and buying only locally-produced food.
In 2021 the series has pledged support to EARTHDAY.ORG’s Canopy Project, which plants trees to benefit local communities, increase habitat for species and combat climate change. Additionally, commitments will be undertaken in every country visited by the series this year, building up to a Great Global Clean-up event, to include the entire PURE ETCR community, in September.
Touring car fans are invited join in the activities and share their experiences on PURE ETCR’s social media channels using #PURETCR and #RestoreOurEarth.

Voltage Velocity Games, The Power of One; One Person, One Bag, One Hour
In celebration of Earth Day, the team at Voltage Velocity Games took matters into their own hands to get out into their community and clean up. Scattered across the country from California to Virginia, Greg Fuller, Tyler Tadevic, Cam Newman, and Zack Hurst showed what can be done with The Power of One: One Person, One Bag, One Hour.
Each were tasked with filling a bag of trash in the area where they lived, worked, or played to help clean up our planet. Voltage Velocity Game's "The Power of One" initiative challenges each of us to take action and make a difference in small ways. After all, if everybody took the time to fill even just one bag of trash, what a big difference it would make.
"I believe if we all just make even the smallest of steps, together, we can really make a big impact on our world," said Founder and CEO Greg Fuller, "I'd like to challenge everybody, no matter where they live, to join us in this initiative to clean up our communities."
Earth Day 2021 is celebrated globally with events on every continent (except Antarctica).
