This year marks 43 years of Earth Day celebrations which now reach over 190 countries worldwide. Sparked by growing concerns over environmental issues it has grown into a global event enhanced by internet forums, blogs, tweets and posts.
The Wikipedia entry describes Earth Day as follows:
“The April 22, 1970, Earth Day marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement. Approximately 20 million Americans participated. Thousands of colleges and universities organized protests against the deterioration of the environment. Groups that had been fighting against oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, Freeway and expressway revolts, the loss of wilderness, and air pollution suddenly realized they shared common values.”
There is all kinds of information available at Earthday.org including programs for teachers and ways to make changes in your life and in your area. Visit the “Pledge an Act of Green” web page and see what you can do.
The goal of the Earth Day organizers was to teach people about global environmental and conservation issues. Registration Control Systems adopted the Earth Day philosophy by making significant changes to the way we do business. From Eco-friendly badge stock to cloud-based lead management the impact of our decreased carbon footprint is making waves in the event services industry. It doesn’t cost more to be environmentally conscious while planning or attending an event using RCS services.
