Glossopedia: Earth Day

Join the celebration of Earth Day, April 22. Senator Gaylord Nelson started Earth Day on April 22, 1970; 20 million people participated in the event, which helped the government pass better laws to protect the environment. It was so successful that the following year, the United Nations made Earth Day an international celebration. This site shares Earth Day celebrations in countries around the world by ringing bells, holding rallies, performing skits, planting trees, holding theme parties, and having car-free streets. Learn about the hole in the Ozone, and how conservation and reducing air pollution can help. Also learn how to rethink, reduce, reuse, and recycle.
