Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day from the Department’s Office of Sustainable Energy and Environmental Programs (OSEEP)!

From photos of Diving With a Purpose volunteers at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to shots of colleagues picking up trash together, the Earth Day Photo Challenge is a reminder of what a thoughtful and inspiring community the Department of Commerce brings together.
