Earth Day

Earth day is a celebration of the Earth. It was celebrated on Sunday, April 22. It was first celebrated in 1970 and is now celebrated in 193 countries. The main purpose of Earth Day is to unite people of many different cultures for a single purpose care for the earth. The purpose is to make all participants of this day Earth trustees and eliminate the problems of pollution, war, poverty, injustice, and conflicts.

Some interesting facts about the Earth are that it is the only planet not named after a Greek or Roman god or goddess, but its name is derived from English and German words which mean ground. The Earth is 4.5 billion years old, and it is supposed to be habitable for at least 3 billion more years. As far as we know, Earth is the only planet capable of supporting life.


Some ways you can celebrate Earth Day is by first learning more about the environment. The reason for this is because if you know what is right and wrong for the Earth, you can choose to do the right things and help others do the same. The biggest problem is to be sure that you do not carelessly litter on the ground because its bad for the plants and generally looks ugly. You should also try to conserve your resources: reduce, reuse, and recycle. Americans produce on average 4.6 pounds of trash daily. We should be able to do better than that for the Earth. The Robo Vikes celebrate Earth Day is by recycling our metals, and giving other teams our old equipment so it does not go to waste. We are a team that values other people and the Earth we live on.
