There’s no place like home — and that's why we celebrate EARTH DAY. Discover the history of this important holiday and what you can do to make an impact.
This year is the 53rd anniversary of Earth Day — and this year’s celebration is more important than ever before. But where exactly did this important event for environmental protection come from?
The idea for Earth Day was originally created by Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970, with the purpose of drawing much needed attention to pressing environmental issues. But prior to this, the protection of our environment wasn't yet at the forefront of national or international politics; few policies had been made thus far — and change was long overdue.
