An Earth Day Message from Our PresidentApril 20, 2012
We asked our president Tensie Whelan to share a few words about her earliest Earth Day memory. She writes…
In 1970, I was an elementary school student in New York City. My school organized a great clean-up in Greenwich Village to commemorate the day. The city – which was particularly dirty, back then – was really buzzing with excitement. There was a general feeling of possibility and jubilation, and a realization that it was our responsibility to keep our planet healthy.
Tell us: what do you remember about your first Earth Day, and how are you planning to celebrate this year?
