When Is Earth Day?

Until recently we didn’t realize Earth Day falls on the same day, April 22, each year. It first began on April 22, 1970 so this year will make it the 49th annual Earth Day!

Teaching our children about the environment and keeping our world healthy is a simple but powerful way we can help the Earth maintain its beauty and resources.

One way we can do this is by sharing simple Earth Day facts with them like:

  • The 1st Earth Day occurred in 1970
  • Earth Day originally began in the United States but is now observed worldwide
  • It only takes 6 weeks for an aluminum can to be produced, recycled, and remanufactured (source)
  • Senator Gaylord Nelson was the founder of the first Earth Day (source)
