Earth Day is an annual event observed on April 22 to encourage awareness about the environment and teach people to embrace nature. This year, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of the celebration, which was founded in 1970 by Gaylord Nelson, a senator from Wisconsin.
In honor of Earth Day, I want to share some of my favorite Earth inspired quotes. The Earth is one thing that we all have in common. We have an obligation to take care of this world we all share, and Earth Day is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the progress we have made.
