Celebrating Earth Day dates back to 1970, when it was first acknowledged in the United States by activist Denis Hayes. In 1990, Earth Day became global, lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. Since then, it has become an annual affair. The whole Earth is a network- Everything, and everyone is connected. The Covid-19 pandemic gave us time to reflect on the pressure we created on Mother Earth and going with this year’s Earth Day’s theme, Invest In Our Planet.
