Earth Day 2008

April 22 is Earth Day 2008. The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970, and was a massive protest about the levels of pollution in the USA at that time, and brought about many changes to US Environmental Legislation. Since then Earth Day has become an annual, as well as an international, event. Nowadays it is more of an educational and inspirational date, as well as a festive occasion with Green Apple Festivals being held in several US cities.
