Earth Day started in 1970 to shine light on our global impact and raise awareness of environmental conservation. Originally, it was only observed in the United States. But, in 1990, the movement went global with over 140 nations participating.
Worldwide initiatives to clean up neighborhoods, beaches, rivers, and parks span the planet, teaching how to be more environmentally conscious. As a traveler, I visit some of the most beautiful natural habitats on earth. I know how precious these places are and the importance of conserving them for future generations to enjoy.
