We focus greatly on the importance to maintain our health and lifestyle to live well and balanced lives. Maintaining a small waistline and energizing ourselves with nutritious foods are goals we can all agree we want to reach. Sometimes, we are so concerned for ourselves that we neglect something bigger than all of us combined- the Earth. The Earths waistline is 24,901 miles long, which means we have a lot of life to take into consideration.
To bring awareness to the Earth and its natural environment, the entire globe celebrates Earth Day once a year. A former United States Senator, Gaylord Nelson, founded Earth Day in 1970 and now it is celebrated in over 170 countries. This year, Earth Day will be celebrated on Monday, April 22.
