Did you know that... the first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970? The oil spill on the beach in Santa Barbara contributed to its organization. The ecological disaster in California resulted in the death of 10,000 animals and was one of the main reasons for establishing April 22 as World Earth Day around the world.

53 years ago, a great change began in the context of spreading pro-ecological attitudes and environmental protection, which is why Earth Day can also be called Ecology Day.

Shortly after the historic first Earth Day, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was established. Thanks to this, numerous legal acts were created to protect endangered species of animals and birds.

The Earth is so... INTERESTING!

On the occasion of Earth Day, we have prepared some interesting facts for you that will allow you to better understand the inhabited planet.

  • 1. More than 70% of the Earth's surface is covered by water, so a more appropriate name for Earth Day would be Water Day.

Dzień Ziemi Let's devote a moment to the traditions associated with Earth Day . In Poland, we can usually observe widespread garbage collection and planting of trees, which will eventually create new forests. Activists from all over the world also have other, unusual suggestions, such as plogging, i.e. collecting garbage while jogging. Art recycling and upcycling are also becoming popular, often used in schools, turning waste into ecological works of art.

Problems we need to remember, not only on Earth Day

Ecology Day was created to spread awareness about the overall condition of our planet and the problems that have developed over years, decades, centuries, and even millions of years. Currently, the biggest problems our planet is struggling with include:

  • global warming
  • climate changes
  • population growth
  • disappearing biodiversity and extinction of endangered species
  • air pollution
  • consumerism
  • progressive urbanization
  • water pollution with plastic and microplastics
