More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world" according to Earth Day Network. 

This day was created by senator Gaylord Nelson  to make people aware of the importance of keeping our planet healthy and clean. On that day,people made promises to help the environment and make positive changes in the community. And you can do it too!
