Earth Day is celebrated on the 22nd of April every year in the United States. It was initially conceived as a day to educate citizens about the environment and prevent further damage to our Earth. Still, it has evolved into a celebration that brings people together to promote sustainability.
The planet has changed a lot in the last 10,000 years, and we have to rethink our actions in order to preserve and conserve it. It is because of this that big and small businesses have taken an interest in environmentalism and have become key players in encouraging people to go green.
