Celebrating Earth Day Everyday: A short history
Since its inception in the 1970s, Earth Day has become a global call to action, emphasizing the urgent need to restore and protect our environment. This annual event reminds us of the delicate balance required to maintain the health of our planet. Originally a response to rampant industrial pollution, deforestation, and ecological neglect, Earth Day began in 1970 when millions marched in the U.S., sparking a worldwide environmental movement.
