Earth Day History
Earth Day started with a man who wanted to help the Earth. His name was Gaylord Nelson. He thought that if all the plants did not exist it would be bad, for everyone. Nelson wrote an article, ''That the state of the environment is simply a non-issue in the politics of our country''. After a little bit the government agreed to make Earth Day a international holiday.
Saving The Earth
Most companies out there are encouraging employees to use less paper and take public transportation to and from work, allowing some employees to telecommute, and use green materials and alternative heating systems when they rebuild or renovate.
Ways We Can Help
We can have a trash day where we go around the whole day picking up any type of trash.
