Earth Day is on April 22, 2012. We can all thank Former U.S. Senator and Wisconsin Governor Gaylord Nelson (D-WI) for this celebration. It was his frustration with fellow politicians not being interested in bringing the environment onto their agendas that pushed him to announce a grassroots effort to acknowledge the importance of each of us being good stewards to the Earth. The first Earth Day was embraced in April 1970 and has been recognized ever since. read more>>>
