Did you know that Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22 and is recognized in 193 countries? This special day began in 1970 as a way for people worldwide to come together in recognition of the importance of environmental protection and keeping our planet clean, safe and sustainable for all.
Though the focus of Earth Day is generally the same year after year, each Earth Day has a special theme. This year's theme is Invest in Our Planet, which focuses on the importance of making changes now and putting habits and processes in place that will preserve our Earth for years to come. It's important to recognize that what we do, or don't do, today, will have lasting impact on our planet forever.
