PROTECT MOTHER EARTH!
“In nature, nothing exists alone.”
— Rachel Carson, 1962
The first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970. Since its inception, Earth Day continues to grow as a worldwide phenomenon focused on promoting a healthy, sustainable environment for people and wildlife alike.
Celebrating Earth Day serves as a conscious reminder of how fragile our planet is and how important it is to protect it. Earth Day is observed annually on April 22. It is a day held to demonstrate and promote environmental awareness and calls for the protection of our planet. Today, Earth Day, 2019 is celebrated in more than 193 countries each year.
We are all interconnected, so when we harm our environment, we are harming ourselves. Humans have irrevocably upset the balance of nature with the use of toxic chemicals, climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides. The impacts are far reaching into future generations to come.
It’s time to educate and raise awareness, encouraging individuals to stop using toxic chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. It’s time to stand up and protest the environmentally dangerous decisions big business makes that do not embrace nature and its values.
EVERY DAY SHOULD BE EARTH DAY!
There’s always hope when individuals ban together to promote environmental awareness. Have fun on April 22nd when you take some time out of your day to clean up your yard, your neighborhood park, or walk a local beach picking up garbage.
