There were a lot of remarkable things about the first Earth Day, but looking back from 2016, what’s most striking is how it brought people together when it felt like society was falling apart. “Conservatives were for it.

MGMThink: What is Earth Day and why is it important to MGM Resorts International?
Cindy Ortega: Virtually all of the things we enjoy in life require the use of natural resources. Earth Day is about taking a moment to reflect upon that, and to understand that, as the world’s population continues to develop and grow, so does the demand for the earth’s resources. Ultimately, it is our responsibility to conserve them.
