Earth Day 2015: What You Can Do (Infographic)

2015 marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. The first Earth Day in 1970 activated over 20-million Americans into what eventually became the modern environmental movement. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created later that same year. Passage of legislation like the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act laid the ground work and still guide many of the environmental policies in the United States today.

The Earth Day Network now estimates that over a billion people across the globe participate in Earth Day activities, making it the largest civil observance in the world. “It’s our turn to lead…So our world leaders can follow by example” is this year’s theme.

Keeley, president and chief executive officer of Baptist Health South Florida. “Reducing pollutants, recycling and conserving energy are all simply part of being a good neighbor in the communities we serve.”
