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!
Sheila, Robin, Amy
