The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970 which activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. This started a passage for Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.
Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement.
More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
