Earth Day

The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

This year, TreeHugger is partnering with Earth Day Network to share news about Earth Day. We'll be attending the Earth Day festivities in Washington DC and look forward to bringing you interviews, photos and updates about the ways Earth Day is helping spread awareness about sustainability.
