- Origin of earth day
Most people do not know how the process was going before the day was considered as an Annual Event. Here the story goes ……………….
Almost 50 years ago , after a catastrophic event called oil spill inciting the group of peace activists to inflate the awareness regarding Environment. In the year 1969 , a proposal was made by peace activist John McConnell in San-Francisco UNESCO conference to honour the Earth and the Environment because he strongly believes that everyone on the earth had the responsibility to fortify the earth . Then Eventually in the succeeding year 1970, Earth Day celebrations hold successfully by entailing 10000 schools and 2000 colleges in the event across the United States . But for now nearly 192 countries participated in celebrating the Earth day
Founder of the Earth Day – US Senator Gaylord Nelson Gaylord Nelson who is senator for the country was equally responsible in not only the John McConnell but also the another activists from Wisconsin , uplifting the Earth Day event . He was the one who discerns the problem of air and water pollution which severely sabotaging the people ‘s health. so he thought that an event should be celebrated where it creates the awareness among the public regarding fragile environmental conditions. His vision got huge response from the like minded people and started to initiate some awareness campaign and not only that but also participated in huge number to elevate this issue .

Earth day 2021 quotes, wallpapers, images
he thirsty earth soaks up the rain,
And drinks, and gapes for drink again.
The plants suck in the earth and are
With constant drinking fresh and fair.
Summer, fall, winter, spring,
The seasons rotate as each brings
Its special beauty to this Earth of ours.
Winter’s snow and summer’s flowers;
Frozen rivers will flow come spring,
There is a renewal of everything.
The season comes when, from her three-month trance,
The Earth awakens: already her deep heart
Begins to stir, and send its life abroad.
