GREEN HEART AT HOME: EARTH DAY EXPLORATION
At The Green Heart Project, one of our three core Green Heart Rules is that we” Respect the Earth.”
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we are reminded of the importance of this pillar of our work and today, we encourage you to learn about the history of this holiday and envision how today, and everyday, you can practice this important rule of respect.
On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans celebrated the first Earth Day. Founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in for students, Earth Day aimed to promote awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. Now, 50 years later, Earth Day is celebrated every year of April 22nd and is the largest, most celebrated environmental event worldwide. In fact, over 175 countries across the world celebrate Earth Day.
