Why Earth Day Matters
Saturday April 22 marks the 47th Annual Earth Day. Since its inception in 1970, Earth Day has grown into an international movement that promotes environmental and legislative campaigns. The Earth Day network has promoted the passage of groundbreaking legislation such as the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act. Prior to the passage of Clean Air and Clean Water Actst in the early 1970’s polluting emissions and substances were released into the air and water.
