Celebrated every April 22, Earth Day is the largest, most celebrated environmental event world-wide.
One billion people in more than 170 countries join in staging events and projects to address local environmental issues.

Environmental challenges abound as our daily actions pollute and degrade the fragile environment that humans and wildlife depend on to survive.

What can we do?

Earth Day provides the opportunity for positive actions and results. First launched as an envirohmental awareness event in the United States in 1970, Earth Day (April 22) is celebrated as the birth of the environmental movement.
In 1990, 200 million people in 141 countries joined in celebrating the first International  Earth Day. In many countries, the global event brought pressure on heads of state to take part in the UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janerio to address issues such as climate change and the world wide loss of species.

We encourage you to take April 22nd to think about the world around you and how you could help, like recycling, reusing or planting a tree or garden.

Happy Earth Day , go green in 2013!

    April 5, 2013   .From Wikipedia:

    Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year. The April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009.[1] Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network,[2] and is celebrated in more than 192 countries every year.[3]

    The name and concept of Earth Day was pioneered by John McConnell in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco. He proposed March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. This day of nature’s equipoise was later sanctioned in a Proclamation signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations. A month later a separate Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970. While this April 22 Earth Day was focused on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes, who was the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations.[4][5] Numerous communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues.

     

     

    The first April 22 Earth Day had participants and celebrants in two thousand colleges and universities, roughly ten thousand primary and secondary schools, and hundreds of communities across the United States. More importantly, it “brought 20 million Americans out into the spring sunshine for peaceful demonstrations in favor of environmental reform.”[6]

    Nelson stated that Earth Day “worked” because of the response at the grassroots level. Twenty-million demonstrators and thousands of schools and local communities participated.[7] He directly credited the first Earth Day with persuading U.S. politicians that environmental legislation had a substantial, lasting constituency.

    It now is observed in 192 countries, and coordinated by the nonprofit Earth Day Network, chaired by the first Earth Day 1970 organizer Denis Hayes, according to whom Earth Day is now “the largest secular holiday in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year.”[8] Environmental groups have sought to make Earth Day into a day of action which changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.[9]

          Words of Wisdom from Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
     “Catch! calls the Once-ler.
     He lets something fall.
     It’s a Truffula Seed.
     It’s the last one of all!
     You’re in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds.
     And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs.
     Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care.
     Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air.
     Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack.
     Then the Lorax
     and all of his friends
     may come back.”

     

    Happy April.
