What is Earth Day?

First Earth Hour, now Earth Day, what next? Earth Week?

Hate to break it to you, but in many countries, it really IS Earth Week now.

Don’t worry, it’s not about turning off electricity for a whole day. Earth Day is simply an event to remind everyone about the importance of protecting and appreciating our planet.

This year, the US-based Earth Day Network will be starting a Green Generation campaign which will slowly build up towards Earth Day’s 40th anniversary next year.

According to Wikipedia, the theme 40 years ago was overpopulation. In spite of that, world population has almost doubled since then, so imagine what would happen if we ignored the current themes of sustainability.
