History

The idea for this celebration was first conceived by US Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1969. He witnesses the devastating effects of an expansive oil spin in Santa Barbara, California. He thus, called forth all Americans to help protect the environment. In 1970, thousands of participants from colleges and universities in the USA organized a series of protests and rallies campaigning for a healthier and more sustainable Earth. They raised the issues of air pollution, loss of habitat, and animal extinction. The first-ever celebration of Earth Day inspired the creation of the United States Environment Protection Agency and Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered special law.
