If you're not able to join us in person, we invite you to celebrate by participating from home. There are lots of great things you can do at home to help the environment!!

About Earth Day

The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. On that day, 20 million Americans - at the time, 10% of the total population of the United States - took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies. By the end of 1970, the first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the U.S. Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts.

Twenty years later in 1990, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage.
