Every year on April 22, people around the world come together to celebrate Earth Day - an annual event aimed at raising awareness about the environmental issues we face and promoting sustainable practices to protect our planet.
The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 in the United States and saw a wave of demonstrations and protests as people demanded action on issues like air and water pollution and deforestation. Since then, Earth Day has become a global movement, observed in over 190 countries worldwide.
Today, Earth Day is celebrated through various actions to protect the environment, such as beach and public space clean-ups, tree plantings, and recycling programs. These activities demonstrate the importance of taking small steps to make a big difference.
