Celebrate Earth Day 2023 with a donation to a Top-Rated Environment & Climate Change charity!
In 1969 at a
UNESCO Conference in California, peace activist John McConnell proposed setting
aside a day to honor the Earth. One month later United States Senator Gaylord
Nelson sanctioned the idea to hold a nationwide environmental education
teach-in day. With this, Earth Day was born!
The first Earth Day was held in the United States on the first day of spring in
March 1970 and is now celebrated on April 22nd of each year by at least 1
billion people in over 193 countries. Earth Day is widely recognized as the
largest secular observance in the world. It is a time set aside to raise public
awareness about the concerning state of our planet and to promote systemic
change designed to mitigate further damage to the environment.
