The History of Earth Day

Ok, so most of us will probably do almost nothing to celebrate Earth Day. But, a ton of work went into the making of this under-appreciated holiday. To read more about the story of Earth Day (first celebrated in, you guessed it, the sixties — 1969, to be exact), click on the link below, as told by the father of Earth Day, Senator Gaylord Nelson.

A lot of work has gone into this holiday, so take a minute to appreciate the earth or reconnect with nature. Skip plastic bags today, go on a bike ride instead of driving a car, or go on a walk instead of sitting in front of the computer screen you’re staring glazy-eyed into right now. Feel that strange, warm sensation? That’s called sunlight! Enjoy!
