Many people may not know the origins of Earth Day, and science Earth Day is fast approaching this coming week, we thought it would be a great time as any to give you all of the history. This is, The history of Earth Day.
Earth day was created in the Spring of 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. He made the holiday to enforce an agenda. Millions of people from many different cities demonstrated Earth day. His plan worked, and Earth Day was made into an official holiday on April 22, 1970.
Another day similar to Earth day which may have been an inspiration is Arbor day, which was created in Nebraska in 1872 a day which people are encouraged to plant trees for Earth’s well being.
And that was the full history of Earth Day.. In a nutshell.
