Today is Earth Day. Many people celebrate Earth Day by doing simple eco-friendly acts such as walking or biking to work, starting a recycle trash system at home or work, or gathering a group of people to clean parks and are other public areas. Numerous communities celebrate Earth Week, promoting an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues.
Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and is celebrated in more than 192 countries every year.
Founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson, the celebration of a special day for our planet was first held on April 22, 1970 with hopes to create a national teach-in on the environment. Nelson chose the April 22 date in order to maximize participation on college campuses.
Today, the annual holiday celebrates 43 years and its impact on our society has been very significant. Along with many movements to protest pollution and environmental degradation, Earth Day has influenced several important environmental issues and has led the government into creating the Environmental Protection Agency and passing the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species acts, according to EarthDay.org.
