Earth Day on the Net
Celebrating and Saving our Planet
Nearly 40 years ago, a dedicated group of some 20 million Americans celebrated the first ever Earth Day. On that April day in 1970, pollution was so rampant that rivers were catching fire and cities were covered in a thick blanket of fog. We have made great strides since that first Earth Day -- and we have caused even greater setbacks.
Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of those who started Earth Day is the promotion of the holiday into a worldwide event. Today, Earth Day is celebrated by one billion people around the globe. In America and elsewhere, grassroots organizations, governments and concerned citizens continue to take the lead on raising awareness about local, national and global environmental issues.
We are delighted to be joining this important international movement for a safer, more sustainable Planet Earth. Please join the campaign as we share tips and fun activities for protecting and promoting the environment.
Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22.
