Happy ‘WORLD EARTH DAY’
April 22nd is ‘World Earth Day’ which grew out of this day in 1970 when millions went to the streets to protest things like pollution, pesticides use and other global ecological awareness issues. Below is a quote from the president of World Earth Day to know more about the origins of the day:
“It is a day of political action and civic participation. People march, sign petitions, meet with their elected officials, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads. Corporations and governments use it to make pledges and announce sustainability measures. Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.”
– Kathleen Rogers, President of World Earth Day. (Quote from www.earthday.org)
