Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22, which is this Tuesday. Originally Earth Day was to be celebrated on the spring equinox, but it was moved a month later so that students would not be away on spring break or taking finals on Earth Day.
As you probably know, Earth Day is this weekend on Sunday the 22nd. Earth Day is a relatively new phenomenon, dating back to 1970. Through the years it has meant different things to different people, and each year it makes us ponder our role in promoting a sustainable and ecologically-friendly method of building.
