NEW YORK, April 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There is no better time to think about our planet than April, the month where more than 192 countries come together to celebrate Earth Day. This year, it is estimated that 1 billion people worldwide will participate in Earth Day activities on April 22nd, a number that continues to grow as more people step up to positively impact our planet. To celebrate Earth Day 2013, each day smarterlifebetterplanet.com will shine a bright (energy efficient) light on one inspiring individual whose unique commitment is making a better planet for all of us.

Our final profile on April 22nd will be of a young environmentalist and his mission to save the oceans, it's a story that can't be missed.

The effort does not stop on April 22nd, it is important to keep the conversation going beyond Earth Day to encourage one another to live a smarter life for a better planet.
