It was the year 1970 when US Senator Gaylord Nelson decided to hold a protest against the pollution of the Earth after checking the aftermath of the Santa Barbara disaster in California in 1969.
Inspired by the protests of the young Americans who challenged the war, Gaylord Nelson, made efforts to put the theme of the preservation of the Earth in the North American political agenda.
The population has joined the demonstration and more than 20 million Americans have expressed their support for the preservation of land and the environment.
Since then, April 22nd has been remembered as International Earth Day, in which it is intended to alert to the environmental impact of human life on Earth and suggest changes in behavior.
