About Earth Day

Everyone has their part in the green revolution. From businesses that innovate to governments that incentivize to individuals who demand action – only united can we save the Earth. To invest means to commit resources in order to generate a substantial return. By investing time, energy, and money throughout all layers of society, we can achieve the green revolution and create a sustainable economy with opportunities for all.

The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 when a United States senator from Wisconsin organized a national demonstration to raise awareness about environmental issues. Rallies took place across the country and, by the end of the year, the U.S. government had created the Environmental Protection Agency. By 1990, Earth Day was an event celebrated by more than 140 countries around the globe.
