<p><strong>Earth Day – From a Brief History</strong></p>
<p>On April 22, 1970, nearly 20 million Americans rallied for a cleaner,
more sustainable environment through teach in demonstrations across the
country. Following that first Earth Day was a significant push for new
legislation which gave birth to the Clean Air and Clean Water Act.</p>
<p>Earth Day has become a annual celebration in more than 185 countries
around the world. More than one billion people now participate in some
way like green festivals, sustainability fairs, recycling events of all
kinds. Activities for Earth Day have expanded so much that the month of
April is now considered Earth Month.</p>
<p>With these successes, Earth Day evolved into a movement for
environmental causes that are truly global in scope – clean air and
water, global warming, etc. However, recycling has been left out.</p>
<p>So What will you do this EarthDay? Earth Day activities from previous
years are a good way to plan for this year.</p>

year.</strong></p>
