Earth Day is an educational day celebration of environmental issues that are celebrated on April 22 every year. First discovered in the 1970s, the idea of Senator Gaylord Nelson and inspired by protests in the 1960s, Earth Day began as a “national education day about the environment”. By increasing public awareness of pollution, Nelson hopes to bring environmental issues into the national spotlight. The first Earth Day is effective for raising awareness about environmental issues and changing public attitudes.
Earth Day Network (EDN), the Earth Day Network, the organization that leads the celebration of Earth Day around the world, sets 2019 as the year to “Protect Our Species.” Some things that can be done during Earth Day celebrations include sorting garbage, planting trees and caring for them, repairing leaking taps, remembering that only 1 percent of the water on earth can be drunk, cleaning cities, parks, beaches and waterways, traveling by public transportation so will reduce vehicle emissions and inhibit climate change, bring their own drinks, reduce paper use, and work together to clean the living environment.
