The first Earth Day was during the height of the flower child era in 1970 when 20 million Americans held demonstrations across the country rallying for a healthy, sustainable environment. The devastation of the oil spill in Santa Barbara, California in 1969 gave Earth Day founder, Gaylord Nelson, the inspiration. The Earth Day Network works all year with over 22,000 partners and organizations to fight for a cleaner environment.
Celebrate this beautiful planet we inhabit… the flowers, trees, lakes, deep seas, billowy clouds, rolling green hills, the Seven Wonders and everything in between by making a few changes that will help keep it clean.
Shut the lights off when you leave a room
- Don’t leave the water running when you brush your teeth
- Purchase local food
- Use reusable bags when you shop
- Recycle. It’s one of the easiest things that a person can do to be more earth friendly
