About Earth Day
The global earth-friendly movement first started on 22 April 1970, when millions of people rallied together to protest against the harmful environmental effects of the Industrial Revolution which started 150 years before. Since then, communities come together each year to hold peaceful protests and civic engagement events, to inspire and bring about concrete improvement in local and global policies that impact the environment.
