restore our earth

This year marks the 51st Earth Day since its inception in 1970. The theme for this year’s observation is Restore Our Earth.

Earth Day began in the United States when a group of young activists organized the first event as a “teach-in” for students to focus on learning about the health and sustainability of the environment.

Today, over 1 billion people around the world take part in Earth Day.
