Earth Day is celebrated across the globe on April 22nd every year and is a day to remember the importance of our planet. We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports understands the significance of a pollution-free environment and clean air for us and our youth, especially those who live in the interior of the city.
History of Earth Day
The history of this day dates back to 1970. At that time, there were no laws regarding the protection of the environment and conservation of water, etc. Senator Gaylord Nelson had long been concerned about the rising levels of environmental pollution. He wanted to address the issue on a large scale and add it to the national agenda. Hence, Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day in an attempt to bring the issues to the national front.
Earth Day’s Achievements Over The Years
Earth Day celebrations have played a major role in spreading awareness among the masses about the importance of our environment and its preservation. Over the years, several environmental laws have been passed including the Clean Water and Clean Air Acts. In addition to this, it promoted recycling practices as well. Due to this and many other achievements, these celebrations have spread across the globe now.
Global warming stands as one of the greatest threats to our environment. Climate change threatens not only the existence of humans but also every other kind of life on earth. Hence, if we are not careful with the way we treat our planet, we might end up watching it die right in front of our eyes.
