Celebrating 45 years of education and awareness, Earth Day has become the most energetic modern environmental movement that led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts (Earth Day Network, 2015). Founded April 22, 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, the first Earth Day validated the voice of many Americans. Eager to make a difference and provide environmental justice to all, those involved with Earth Day and Earth Day events advance the mission and objectives of this grassroots movement by “establishing sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth” (National Resource Defense Council, 2015).
