On April 22, 1970, almost 20 million Americans rallied for a cleaner, more sustainable environment through “teach in” demonstrations throughout the nation. Springing from the first Earth Day were important amendments to the Clean Air Act and the creation of the Clean Water Act.
Earth Day has become a yearly celebration in over 175 countries, with one billion people engaging in sustainability fairs, cleanups and recycling events globally. Activities for Earth Day have expanded so much that the month of April is now considered Earth Month.
With these successes, Earth Day evolved into a movement for environmental causes which are truly international in scope – clean air and water, global warming, etc.. However, recycling was left out in the cold.
