DYK the first Earth Day was way back in 1970? That means next year, the movement's 50th anniversary, will be a big one – but 2019's global event will be just as important.
'As the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day approaches, the time is long overdue for a global outpouring of energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to create a new environmental paradigm', says the Earth Day Network. The first Earth Day in 1970 led to the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and other legal frameworks in the USA, things we need more of across the world now.
Here's a video from Earth Day Network showing just how awesome our planet is to motivate us to making waves this Earth Day, Monday April 22nd.
