The History of Earth Day
The first Earth Day took place on April 22nd in 1970. The idea to create a day to help raise awareness about pollution and protecting our environment came from Gaylord Nelson. Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, was inspired by the anger and public consciousness that came as a result of the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara. Since 1970, every year on April 22nd, people all over the world have banded together to make a difference for our environment.
