This event is held on 22nd April 2022 this year to demonstrate and promote climate and environmental awareness. Earth day began in 1970 and was designed to support environmental protection. Celebrating Earth day focuses on clean living, sustainable habitats for people and wildlife and is a reminder of how fragile our planet is.
When life returns to normal (post lockdown) let’s hope that our world doesn’t return to business as usual, but with a renewed appreciation for our natural world. The Earth Day website asserts that a healthy planet is not an option-it is essential.
