“Earth Day falls every year on April 22, in celebration of the importance of the environment and to encourage action. It was initiated in 1970 by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, who started a “teach-in” to protest the government’s environmental ignorance. This eventually led to legislation including the Environmental Policy Act (1969), the Clean Air Act (1970), the Clean Water Act (1977) and fuel efficiency standards for automobiles.
Recycling is one of the easiest ways for people to take action on behalf of the environment, a way to make Every Day Earth Day. Recycling reduces the amount of waste in landfills, and prevents hazardous materials from leaking into our soil and water systems.
Earth day is a day to stop and think about your affect on the environment and what you can do to help protect it. One of the best ways to do that is by properly disposing of the products in your life”.
