It’s Earth Day which means it’s the one day of the year that most of us stop to talk about recycling and carbon imprints and what we can do to save the environment. It’s a shame that most of us don’t think about saving the Earth year round because according to pop culture, the world is constantly on the brink of cataclysmic disaster.

In honor of Earth Day, we’ve decided to take a look at 10 of these real world super heroes!
