I've been a part of the movement since the first Earth Day in 1970. Since then Earth Day has served a great purpose in bringing new people into the environmental movement. I'm happy to see these efforts personified in Earth Day Network and that they have kept the flame burning.
Earth Day Network is a dedicated environmental education organization that does great work in the community. Their Green Schools Campaign is particularly inspirational and has had a tremendously positive impact on thousands of teachers, parents and students across the country. Thank you for all your hard work!
