Today on April 22nd marks the 49th anniversary of Earth Day! Each year, the Earth Day Network promotes positive ideas in an attempt to change our planet for the better.
Beginning in 1970, Earth Day's purpose gave light to the emerging decision to take action and protect the planet we call home. 20 millions Americans took action, protesting against the negative impacts to nature due to the Industrial Revolution. Since the first celebration of Earth Day, the cause and movement has grown to become a necessary step in environmental change.
