April 22

Founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues, Earth Day is now a globally celebrated holiday that is sometimes extended into Earth Week, a full seven days of events focused on green awareness. The brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson and inspired by the antiwar protests of the late 1960s, Earth Day began as a "national teach-in on the environment" and was held on April 22. By raising public awareness of air and water pollution, Nelson hoped to bring environmental causes into the national spotlight.
