Earth Day 2012

Earth Day 2012*

Take a stand and let's make each day we are given Earth Day. Let's protect and conserve our heritage of this earth and make it cleanly available for future generations.

Make a pledge to renew, not waste and not continue to destroy. 

Pledge to clean up our environment. To plant. To sow seeds of life back into our earth so those that follow us will know we understood that without a green earth life is unsustainable.

"Earth day first began in the United States in 1970. This celebration was started by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970.

April 22 was selected because of its location in the year. The day was originally meant to be an educational day, so Nelson wanted to ensure that college students were going to be in session during this day. He felt that more people would be reached if they were in class during this time." (Source:

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.” ~ Cree Indian Proverb

It is up to each of us to respect and savor our earth that has been given to us freely.

Are you willing to take a stand and pledge to make each day Earth Day?

Happy Earth Day
