Earth Day Facts -
April 22nd, 1970, marks the birth of the modern environmental movement, when 20 million Americans took to the streets across the country in the name of conservation. Capitalizing on the prevalent activism of the time, organizers united people from all walks of life against repeated oil spills, gross pollution, toxic dumps, and abject destruction of wilderness. That famous first Earth Day led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as the passing of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.
What The Bristol Hotel is Doing to Help -
