Earth Day is eagerly awaited by marketers every year. It offers them an opportunity to interact with the target audience using eco-friendly giveaways. This year, Earth Day falls on a Saturday (April 22nd, 2017).
Origins of Earth Day
Earth Day has origins that date back to 1969. That’s when an oil spill caused panic in Southern California, putting marine life at tremendous risk. Gaylord Nelson, a Wisconsin senator at the time, rose to the occasion and talked in great detail about the hazardous impact of water and air pollution.
He organized a national earth awareness day that educated citizens about the importance of keeping the environment safe. That day was known as Earth Day. The first Earth Day witnessed participation from 20 million Americans. The rest, as they say, is history.
