HAPPY EARTH DAY!



Ok..I really need to educate myself on this day! I didn't even know it was earth day and I really don't know why we have earth day or anything to that affect..Sorry I know at my age I should know i guess.....right? Or are there others out there that are lost with me.....am I not alone?:))

From grassroots beginnings in 1970, Earth Day—which celebrates its 40th anniversary today—has blossomed into a global tradition.
The campaign aims to make Earth Day's 40th anniversary the moment when the green generation comes together to address pressing environmental concerns, such as the global freshwater crisis and global warming.

Why is April 22 Earth Day?

One persistent rumor holds that April 22 was chosen because it's the birthday of Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the Soviet Union.
Earth Day is now celebrated every year by more than a billion people in 180 countries around the world, Rogers said

Earth Day Network is pushing the Earth Day movement from single-day actions—such as park cleanups and tree-planting parties—to long-term commitments.


What to Do on Earth Day?
Hundreds of events are held each year across the world on and around April 22 to mark Earth Day
Among the highlights for the 40th anniversary include the first community garbage cleanup in Kolkata (Calcutta), India, which does not have garbage-collection service. Rogers said that event is a stepping-stone in the establishment of an environmental movement in India
