Earth Day 2011

What is Earth Day?
It’s a day to promote awareness and appreciation for the environment. It’s also a day to promote a green awareness. Earth Day started on April 22, 1970 by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson in an efforts to force the issue about protecting our environment. Since this, his vision has impacted thousands of organizations and people all over the world.

Everyone can get involved, even kids. To kids it’s fun to let them know that Earth Day is like a birthday, and help them celebrate by doing something positive that will benefit the environment, like eating their vegetables, cleaning their room, watering a plant or turning off lights that are not in use, even encouraging them to use only the water they need and not let it run longer than necessary.

Earth Day has inspired many organizations and people all around the world from politicians to celebrities. We live here on this earth, and it’s a duty for each of us to contribute in some positive way towards the earth’s environment.
