Earth Day for the planet

It’s not a day, it’s a movement.

Earth Day founders created and organized the first Earth Day, also called International Mother Earth Day, on April 22, 1970. Since then, EARTHDAY.ORG has mobilized over 1 billion people annually on Earth Day, and every other day, to protect the planet. According to the website, “Earth Day has evolved into the largest civic event on Earth, activating billions across 192 countries to safeguard our planet and fight for a brighter future.”
