There are lots of ways to celebrate Earth Day not only once a year but every day of the year. Proper recycling, conserving water and not littering are things we can all do. What ways will you be celebrating Earth Day this year?
The very first Earth Day was started in April of 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson as a way to force environmental issues onto the national agenda. Twenty million Americans, along with more than 200 million people representing 141 countries around the world, participated and the environmental revolution began. Later that year, Congress authorized the creation of a new federal agency to tackle environmental issues, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
