Happy Earth Day 2022 – Invest in Our Planet
Each year on April 22, billions of people across the globe join together to raise awareness about environmental protection. Earth Day was first celebrated in the United States on April 22, 1970. Today around 1 billion people in 193 countries take part in Earth Day and resolve to protect the environment and biodiversity. The 2022 theme is “Invest in Our Planet”.
Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970, when a United States senator from Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson organized a national demonstration to raise awareness about environmental issues. Rallies took place across the country and, by the end of the year, the U.S. government had created the Environmental Protection Agency.
