Earth Day - Part 2

Earth Day 22. April

Understand Protect Appreciate

Each year Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species acts.

In 1990 the Earth Day became a global event and gave a huge boost to recycling efforts worldwide and also helped pave the way for the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.
