Earth Day isn’t just another day it’s every day! But for this Earth Day, many of your favorite businesses are giving you something to be thankful for!
What is Earth Day?
Simply put, Earth Day is an annual reminder to protect our planet and make more environmentally conscious decisions.
The history: In spring 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin created Earth Day as a way to force clean air and water issues onto the national agenda. Over twenty million people went out and demonstrated their support in different U.S. cities, and it worked! In December 1970, Congress authorized the creation of a new federal agency to tackle environmental issues, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
