Earth Day 2023 : Wishes, Quotes, Messages
Earth Day is a global celebration encouraging education and stewardship of the planet’s natural resources. Earth Day was first celebrated on 22 April, 1970. It’s a day to reflect on our planet, our environment and what we can do to help keep them healthy. On this day people around the world mobilize to address some of the most urgent threats facing our environment, from climate change to deforestation to plastic pollution.
Earth Day was primarily conceived and brought to life by a dedicated public servant: the late Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. Senator Nelson changed the world, by building a legacy of environmental protection through Earth Day and all of the progress that has come in its wake. Over half a century later, that legacy lives on in the chorus of courageous young people across the world who are rising up to demand action on climate change.
April 22 was chosen as the date for Earth Day because it fell between Spring Break and final exams, and organizers wanted to maximize student involvement.
Take a weekend morning to scour the neighborhood for discarded plastics, cans, and bottles for a personal cleanup project that will help the entire community. If you live in a coastal area, this is especially important in helping to protect ocean wildlife. In the backyard, choose a good location (away from the growing area) for a compost pile. Start recycling coffee grounds, egg shells, and scraps of food to decompose and to ultimately enrich your garden for the upcoming growing season.
You can celebrate the day by participating in some smaller Earth day activities to larger climate change initiatives. But the most important part is to be aware and make others aware every day of the year!
