April 22 marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day. This event was first organized in 1970 to promote ecology and respect for life on the planet, as well as to highlight the growing problems of air, water and soil pollution. In 2009, the United Nations designated April 22 as “International Mother Earth Day.”
