Mark your calendars now! April 22, 2008 is quickly approaching. As you can see, we at Green Business Alliance have added the Earth Day 2008 countdown calculator to our home page. In just 54 days, millions of people from around the world will celebrate the 39th Annual Earth Day. The focus of Earth Day is to raise awareness of and support our environment and eco-friendly habits. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin was the principal founder of this event which dates back to 1970. It began as a nationwide grassroots demonstration on the environment intended to inspire gratitude for and consciousness of the Earth’s environment.
Earth Day festivities and events will be held here in the United States on Sunday, April 20th in major cities such as: Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas and Miami. Additionally, there will be Earth Day celebrations held locally in schools, community centers, and colleges around the world. The global action theme of this year’s events will be A Call for Climate.
The time is now to start thinking about your Earth Day plans. This blog marks the first in a series dedicated to this global environmental celebration. Check back soon for the next installment of Green Business Alliance’s Earth Day blog.
