With this, creators are able to keep others informed on issues that they are passionate about. One pressing topic that has been creating buzz on TikTok is the preservation and protection of the environment.
In celebration of Earth Month, which takes place in April of every year, highlighted by Earth Day on April 22nd, TikTok reinforces its continued commitment to boost awareness around environmental issues, and educate communities on sustainability, in a way that will resonate with many people around the world. This will be done through a communications campaign that aims to encourage sustainability-led conversations and trends on the platform, and highlight local creators and content that are driven towards this cause.
