It’s Earth Day this weekend, so if you like living on the only known planet with life, then it’s time to celebrate!
Whether your environmental action on Earth Day is large or small, just make sure you participate. This planet is the only home we have, and we need to appreciate and take care of it.
In 1970, then U.S. Senator from Wisconsin Gaylord Nelson created the holiday in response to a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara.
In just one year of being in place, it was credited with inspiring the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts, as well as the formation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The EPA has been receiving some hits from the new presidential administration, so advocating for its funding and more competent leadership would be a good way to get involved Saturday.
