World Earth Day- 22nd April.

Arbor Day
Every April 22, we celebrate Earth Day! People believe, ve that caring for nature, plants, and the land is integral to our own health and that individual responsibility lies with each of us! Whether it’s a healing walk through the woods, picking up litter (while walking!), or buying more Earth-friendly products, here are 10 ways that we can help to care for our planet.
The “green things growing” whisper me
Of many an earth-old mystery

THE 51ST ANNIVERSARY OF EARTH DAY
Earth Day 2021 will mark the 51st anniversary of this holiday. Typically, Earth Day is assigned a different theme or area of focus each year; this year’s theme is
Restore Our Earth.”
Most years, Earth Day events range from river cleanups to removals of invasive plants. With social distancing still in place for many of us this April, Earth Day has gone digital. Virtual events, such as environmental lectures and films, will take place on Earth Day
(Thursday, April 22).
Of course, social distancing doesn’t mean that we can’t go outside and enjoy nature, as long as we do so responsibly! Nature is not canceled! 
WHAT IS EARTH DAY?
Ever wonder how Earth Day began? The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970, when San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration. Dealing with dangerously serious issues concerning toxic drinking water, air pollution, and the effects of pesticides, an impressive 20 million Americans—10% of the population—ventured outdoors and protested together.
President Richard Nixon led the nation in creating the Environmental Protection Agency, which followed with successful laws including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act.
McConnell originally had chosen the spring equinox (March 20, 1970), but Nelson chose April 22, which ended up becoming the official celebration date. (Given that the date of the spring equinox changes over time, it may have made things more complicated to go with the astronomical event rather than just a calendar date.)
Today, not only is Earth Day a day meant to increase awareness of environmental problems, but also it is also becoming a popular time for many communities to gather together to clean up litter, plant trees, or simply reflect on the beauty of nature. Further down the page, we’ve provided a list of activities and projects that we can do to improve your local environment!
WHEN IS EARTH DAY?
Earth Day is always celebrated on April 22. It’s followed closely by Arbor Day, which falls on the last Friday in April.
Let the whole world observe for our own benefits.

  1. Earth Day – an important day – beautifully revealed in your post!

    Lost our sense of appreciation that nature and our earth deserve?

    True indeed!

    Are we not indebted to this earth that bears everything on our behalf?

    Fairness demands our introspection and change of attitude towards nature!

    For sure we will pay back in abundance and prove our worth in this respect….
