Earth Day is a global event.
Activities and
events are held
each year as a
show of
support for
Earth’s
environment.
Earth Day is
celebrated each
year on April 22.
The purpose is to show global support
for the protection of our environment.
Earth Day is celebrated worldwide in
over 192 countries.
The first Earth Day was held on April
22, 1970.
Why was Earth Day started?
In the late 1960’s and into 1970, most
Americans paid little attention to the damage
being done to our environment.
Most Americans drove very
large cars that got very poor gas
mileage. Not only were
petroleum products being used
excessively, but automobile
emissions were polluting the air.
Many industries paid little attention to
the damage they were doing to the
environment.
Earth Day 1970 was organized to promote awareness for our
environment, and to encourage all people to take better care
of the environment.
Gaylord Nelson, a US Senator
from Wisconsin, proposed
and organized the first Earth
Day in 1970. As a result, on
April 20, 1970, 20 million
Americans took up the
environmental cause and
protested.
Thousands of schools,
colleges and universities
participated in the first
Earth Day. The
participants led peaceful
demonstrations in favor
of environmental reform.
Americans protested
against oil spills….
…polluting industries and power plants…..
….the dumping of raw sewage….
…..the dumping of
toxins, such as
pesticides and other
toxic wastes, into
streams and
rivers…..
…..the loss of wilderness and deforestation…..
…..and the extinction of many wildlife species.
The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States
Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air,
Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.
In 1990 Earth Day
went global,
mobilizing 200
million people in
141 countries
In 1995 President Bill Clinton awarded Senator Nelson the
Presidential Medal of Freedom -- the highest honor given to
civilians in the United States -- for his role as Earth Day founder.
In 2010, on the 40th
anniversary of Earth Day,
the Earth Day Network
launched a “Billion Acts of
Green.” Participants were
asked to register their “acts
of green” and state what
they were doing to protect
the environment.
By April 22,
2012, one billion
actions had been
recorded by the
people of the
world.
The Earth Day
Network has now set
as its goal, 2 billion
“acts of green.”
You can record your
actions here:

What is
your goal
for Earth
Day?
What can you
do to protect
the Earth?
Happy Earth Day!
