What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is a holiday to celebrate our planet, raise awareness about pollution and help make our Earth a happier, cleaner planet for us all. Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd and began as an environmental movement in the ‘70s. And while you may have likely heard of Earth Day before, not everyone knows that a NY Times best seller book is a pretty big reason this journey towards pollution awareness began.
In 1962, Rachel Carson published her book Silent Spring, which outlined a strong case for how polluting nature would negatively impact people. Her bold beliefs helped kickstart an environmental movement and remind us today that every action we take impacts our planet. So no matter how big or small, there’s plenty of reasons to reduce our carbon footprint and create a positive impact on the environment by celebrating Earth Day this year and incorporating #smallactsoflove into your routine!
