Earth Day aims to inspire awareness of and appreciation for earth’s environment. The April 22 Earth Day, founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson, was first organized in 1970 to promote ecology and respect for life on the planet as well as to encourage awareness of the growing problems of air, water and soil pollution.
Participation in Earth Day is a great way to inspire your family to give back to our planet which does so much for us. There are so many amazing activities to engage in that are FREE to the public.
