Bird Carrying Garbage for Earth Day Celebration 2021

What is Earth Day?

First Celebrated in the US on April 22, 1970, Earth Day moved across the globe over the years and grew beyond a major day of environmental action. Celebrated now by many countries around the world, it also became the organization Earth Day Canada. This organization operates year round, as well as, a major environmental day we know as Earth Day. Earth Day Canada’s Mission is to help individuals and organizations reduce their impact on the environment.
