Earth Day – 40th Anniversary
Posted April 22, 2010on:
Earth Day started in 1970 by a U.S. Senator by the name of Gaylord Nelson. He wanted to teach people about the Earth and how to care for our environment. This day caught on quickly due to a large variety of environmental groups who were working towards the same goal of raising environmental awareness by focusing on specific issues like oil spills, wild life extinction, toxic waste dumping, factory pollution, and many more.
There are many ways you can contribute to improving the health of our environment, whether it’s how you live day-to-day by decreasing your carbon footprint or helping organizations with their efforts. Every bit helps! What do you do to help improve our environment?
