EARTH DAY 2021

The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970, as a teach-in project organized by Senator Gaylord Nelson from Clear Lake, Wisconsin (that’s my hometown!) By 1990, Earth Day celebrated worldwide. And, now it has evolved into Earth Week and even Earth Month! During this celebration, people of all ages, races and backgrounds come together for a common good.
Earth Day Activities include picking up trash and garbage, planting trees, cleaning up coral reefs, and planning for a better future for our planet. Earth Day was started by Senator Gaylord Nelson, who happens to be from the same tiny town in Wisconsin that I’m from! It started as an environmental teach-in. In other words, a day to learn about how to take better care of the earth. Please check back as we update our big list of Earth Day freebies for 2019!
