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.
