Earth Day was created back in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson who wanted to make sure environment protection got on the national agenda. Today, we celebrate the day through events like beach clean-ups, environmental fairs and more. If you are looking for ways to give back or learn about the environment for Earth Day, we have you covered!
