What is Earth Day?
Earth day falls on the 22nd April and is all about raising awareness for the environmental protection of our planet and how we as humans can get inspired to act on positive and long term change. It’s also about appreciating the beauty of nature our planet provides. It was first celebrated in 1970 and now 193 countries celebrate Earth day every year.
