REMINDER: Today is Earth Day

Today is a very important day for the planet. It’s Earth Day.

Earth Day is on April 22nd every year. This has been recognized since 1970. The idea was proposed by a Wisconsin Senator. He wanted to educate the country about the environment.

Also in 1970, congress created The Environmental Protection Agency and passed the Clean Air Act. So today is the perfect day to start thinking about recycling or maybe pick up trash.
