    Earth Day is a time of year to promote awareness of the environmental issues that are occurring on Earth. It is also time for us to protect the natural gifts it has given us.

    Earth Day started in 1970, when Gaylord Nelson, a U.S. senator from Wisconsin, when he wanted a nation-wide teach-in on the environment. He brought the idea to state governors, mayors of big cities, editors of college newspapers, and to Scholastic Magazine, which is circulated in U.S. elementary and secondary schools. Eventually, the idea of Earth Day spread to many people across the country. Earth Day was a big success. Many organizations were developed to on behalf of Earth Day and to help protect where we live now.

    Now, Earth Day has turned into a universal concern and many people are now aware of what is happening to our planet. More and more people are turning their attention to what it happening because of Global Warming and are taking time to help out on Earth Day.

    It's a day to honor the earth for having you among its vast inhabitants. Also, you should clean up Earth. Some people take this day as a day for buisness wich is a real pity.

    Earth Day was created so people would stop and look at what we are doing to this world. Clean up your acr or there will be no earth.
