Earth Day - April 22, 2013

Earth Day 2013 Theme: coming soon!

Earth Day is a launch pad for course-changing, positive environmental action. Since 1970, Earth Day has activated individuals and organizations annually to strengthen the collective fight against man’s exploitive relationship with
the planet. The Earth Day campaign aims to combat climate change by driving substantive behavioral change and channel quantifiable action on behalf of the environment.

Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22

Why only 22 April ?

Because it did not fall during exams or spring breaks, did not conflict with religious holidays and was late enough in spring to have decent weather.

Founder of Earth Day: Senator Gaylord Nelson

First Earth Day: April 22, 1970
