Back in 1970 the first Earth Day was created as a day of teaching and education about the environmental issues our planet faces. Designed to raise awareness and conservation efforts to keep our planet and its inhabitants healthy, Earth Day quickly became an international phenomenon celebrated around the world.
In the nearly 50 years since its inception, Earth Day evolved from a hip, thought-provoking happening aimed at college kids to a day of fun and teachable moments intended to prompt kids at every age to take action in the era of global warming.
