Get all the latest news, live updates & top stories on Earth Day
Every year on April 22, Earth Day celebrates the birth of the modern environmental movement that started in 1970. By 1990, Earth Day had turned everyone's attention towards understanding the importance of environmental issues and solving such issues as a worldwide movement. Earth Day 2020, the 50th anniversary of the world-wide celebration, will be a more or less quiet one due to the current coronavirus pandemic. As such, this year's celebrations should be limited to everyone's immediate and virtual surroundings only; be sure to check out some of the videos down below to either brush up on your history of Earth Day or find creative ways you can celebrate safely.
