The power of aromatherapy - curated without compromise
Body Bliss is a big believer in the Power of Earth Day. Approaching its 50th Anniversary, the first Earth Day was held in 1970, and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement, as the passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act soon followed. Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
This year, Earth Day, on April 22, will feature The March for Science, a rally and “teach-in” on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The Washington rally and teach-ins, and the world-wide events, will fight against efforts to silence science by creating and supporting knowledge sharing, community engagement, citizen science and stewardship.
Some of Earth Day’s more notable initiatives and accomplishments over the more than four and half decades include:
A Billion Acts of Green, the largest environmental service campaign in the world to encourage individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments to protect the planet. The goal of registering a billion environmental actions was accomplished in 2012, and today has surpassed two billion actions.
The Canopy Project, the tree planting initiative launched in 2010, responsible for planting hundreds of millions of trees in 32 countries. The project focuses on areas most in need of reforestation.
Global Water Network, a water-focused web portal launched in 2009, that brings professionals, activists, and the public together to a single site focused entirely on the global fresh water crises.
Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day, a rally was held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., bringing together world leaders, corporate innovators and other dignitaries. In front of an audience of more than a quarter million people, critical commitments to address climate change were made.
The Story of Climate Change, the first-ever iTextbook on climate change.
