Earth Day 2015 = 45 Years of Earth Day
Earth Day, April 22, 2015, marks 45 consecutive years of Earth environmental consciousness. On April 22, 1970, 20 million demonstrated to support the environment as conscious land/sea/atmosphere and ecosystem stewards. In that same year, the Environmental Protection Agency was established (EPA, 1970). This year an estimated 1 billion spanning 142 countries observe the date with various events.
