Earth Day

Page history last edited by Cheryl Madden 6 years, 11 months ago

Today we will learn about Earth Day

in order to identify

ways to promote a healthy environment.

 


 

A special day has been set aside each year on April 22nd. 

The purpose is to help us be more environmentally aware.

This day is called Earth Day, and it is a day to share messages

about protecting our planet and its resources.

 

Did you know...

  • April 22nd is Earth Day.  It began in 1970 with the message "Give earth a chance."
  • Every ton of recycled paper saves about 17 trees.
  • Recycling one glass jar saves enough energy to keep a 100-watt light bulb on for 4 hours.
  • Water covers 3/4ths of the earth's surface, and almost all of it is salt water.
  • People in the U.S. use an average of 70 gallons of water every day.
  • We throw away an average of four pounds of garbage a day, per person, in the U.S.
