Other countries refer to it as “International Mother Earth Day.” That's the name it was given by the United Nations in 2009. Here in the United States we simply call it “Earth Day”. Either way, we are fortunate to call Earth home and we need to respect her.
Earth Day was created in 1970 by Wisconsin senator Gaylord Nelson and is celebrated yearly on April 22 with the intention of raising awareness about pollution and the need to take care of our environment by reducing, reusing, and recycling resources. There is no Planet B.
This year’s Earth Day theme is Restore Our Earth, which reminds us that because we require a healthy Earth to support our lives, our health and our survival, each of us must strive to protect, restore and renew her.
A person of any age can plant a tree, help clean up their community and reduce waste in their own homes. Try some of these Earth Day tips.
Mother Earth would appreciate us giving back!
