More attention is being placed on our accountability and responsibility for taking care of Mother Earth. We have to honestly look at ourselves to see if we are being as responsible as we should be, in order to build a cleaner and healthier environment for the generations to come.
According to the Columbia Encyclopedia, Earth Day, which is April 22, is a day to celebrate the environment. The first Earth Day was organized in 1970 to promote the ideas of ecology, encourage respect for life on earth, and highlight growing concern over pollution of the soil, air, and water. Earth Day is now observed in 140 nations with outdoor performances, exhibits, street fairs, and television programs that focus on environmental issues.
