“We only have one earth, so we need to take care of her,” said Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin. He first started Earth Day on April 22nd, 1970 after witnessing a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. His purpose was to force environmental protection onto the national political agenda and he succeeded. 20 million Americans demonstrated in parks, auditoriums, and streets to protest for a sustainable environment. By the end of 1970, The United States Environmental Protection Agency was created as a result of that first Earth Day, as well as the passing of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Earth Day went global by 1990 and is still a strong movement today. Even though you may be on a budget, there are ways to go green and save green at the same time.
