Happy Earth Day! What is Earth Day and how do we celebrate it?

Earth Day originated in the US in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson after he witnessed a massive oil spill that leaked millions of gallons of oil off the coast of Santa Barbara, CA. In 1990, it was recognized as a National Holiday!

Earth Day was influential in passing many environmental legislations such as:
Clean Air Act
Clean Water Act
Endangered Species Act
National Environmental Education Act
and many more

A Simple Celebration of National Earth Day Can be:

Plant a tree to add some green to your space.
Ride a bike to work or school.
Go for a hike and discover native plants.
Buy produce from a local farmer’s market.
Shop sustainable brands.
Join a group that is focused on Environmental Issues
