History of Earth Day:

Earth Day was a unified response to an environment in crisis — oil spills, smog, rivers so polluted they literally caught fire.

On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans — 10% of the U.S. population at the time — took to the streets, college campuses, and hundreds of cities to protest environmental ignorance and demand a new way forward for our planet.

The first Earth Day is credited with launching the modern environmental movement, and is now recognizes as the planet’s largest civic event.

Theme in 2024:

The theme for Earth Day 2024 is Planet vs. Plastics. This theme “calls to advocate for widespread awareness on the health risk of plastics, rapidly phase out all single use plastics, urgently push for a strong UN Treaty on Plastic Pollution, and demand an end to fast fashion.”  Click here for more information.

This is about taking control of the problem of plastic that is generated, and discarded, all over the world. This is not just about generating less trash, it’s also about keeping us and the environment healthy.
