The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life to speak out against the deterioration of the environment and demand change. As a result, the Environmental Protection Agency was created, the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts were passed, and the modern environmental movement was born.

More than 1 billion people in 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it
the largest civic observance in the world.  This year, in the face of global inaction on pressing
environmental problems, we must harness that power.

  1. that 6 words thing is neat! not sure what we’re going to do… wonder how hard it is to make a compost bin. that might be fun!

    • I thought so, too! I spent probably too much time reading what people wrote. There were some really great ones. We have had a couple different kinds of compost bins. One we made directly in the ground – it was okay. The other one was given to us by my mother in law. It was the barrel kind that you can turn with a handle. That one worked really well.

  2. Love your six words.

    We have some little plants growing, but will mostly celebrate Earth Day by spending time outdoors!
