For six-years, every single public school in Miami-Dade has received a green flag and native tree sapling for students to plant in their schools to commemorate Earth Day.

Cortada created this project to engage people globally to help slow the polar thaw: Participants plant a native tree next to a green flag at home and ask their neighbors to do the same.
On April 22nd, 2015, special ceremonies will take place in two schools where Xavier Cortada will lead students in planting a tree and flag at their school. Students will also be provided with saplings and flags for them to plant at home
