April 22 is Earth Day

This unified response to an environment in crisis started in the U.S. back in 1970. That very first event gathered 20 million Americans — 10% of the population at the time — to protest environmental ignorance and demand a new way forward for our planet. Earth Day is often said to have been the start of the environmental movement and it is still the world’s largest civic event.
