Earth Day, which takes place on April 22nd, was initially started to help support environmental protection and help spread awareness of earth’s preservation. This annual celebration of earth became a day of recognition in April of 1970, when millions of individuals began protesting the negative effects the Industrial Revolution had on the environment.
Today, millions of people around the world continue to celebrate earth day by planting trees, abstaining from plastic water bottles, or by volunteering to clean up local parks—to name a few. An ideal way to help promote Earth Day might consist of walking, riding your bike, using public transportation, or investing in a hybrid vehicle.
Over the years, environmental preservation has become an increasingly important issue throughout society.
