Happy Earth Day everyone! That’s right, April 22 is the day when up to half a billion people around the globe leave the car behind, or plant a tree, or buy only local produce, or in some other way show their concern for the environment by doing something positive to help it.
You can see the new in MSN. Here, you can find a excerpt…:
The first Earth Day was held on 22 April 1970.
Earth Day 1970 shocked the American political class into action.
Campaigners (against this day) have even compared Earth Day to Christmas or Mother’s Day: a simple idea submerged in a wave of consumerism. Unlikely Earth Day champions now include huge corporations like Wal-mart, Banana Republic and Macy’s.
But many others believe that Earth Day still has something positive to say…“Small steps lead to education and awareness and that leads to votes and votes lead to change,”
