35 Inspirational Earth Day Quotes


If you love Nature and support Earth Day, then you’ll love these Earth Day quotes.

Earth Day is celebrated every April 22. Decades ago, before the first Earth Day was organized and celebrated, very few people paid attention to or were concerned about the environment. Air pollution at that time was the scent of development and prosperity.

Fortunately for us and the planet, many factors coincided to bring about the very first Earth Day in 1970. Rachel Carson published her New York Times bestseller Silent Spring in 1962. Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson was inspired by the student anti-war movement and worked to bring about awareness of air and water pollution.

Finally, on April 22, 1970, twenty million Americans rallied for a sustainable and healthy environment. Republicans, Democrats, rich, poor, farmers, students, labor leaders, and everybody aligned in protesting against the degradation of the environment.

Subsequent Earth Day movements became bigger and grander as they launched on a global scale across countries and now using the Internet as a means and platform to reach even more people.

Fellow Earth-lovers, share these Earth Day quotes with friends and family to help spread awareness and consciousness.
