On April 22, 1970, Earth Day began as a nationwide protest against pollution and for bringing environmental concerns into the publics awareness. Coast-to-coast, 20 million Americans demonstrated in the streets, parks, and auditoriums for a healthy and sustainable way of living. Both Republicans and Democrats agreed a change was needed. Because of this first Earth Day, the United States Environmental Protection Agency was created and the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Act was passed. Earth Day went global in 1990 with 200 million people in 141 countries participating. Today Climate Change is an every day topic and how we as a people can make the world a better, healthier place for ourselves and the future generations.
Celebrate Earth Day enjoying the nature around and by being environmentally conscious of your habits. Show your support with an Earth flag or Earth banner and a new solar light flagpole for your garden.
