Earth Day is an annual event that we celebrate April 22nd, which happens to be today. This day is dedicated to support and inform people about environmental protection. Earth Day began in 1970 and is now celebrated in over 192 countries. Although we celebrate this day every year there are still issues in our environment, a major one being pollution. To raise more awareness, today you may have seen “Earth Day” pop up on social media. I continued to see it on my snapchat today.
