Any idea why the words Earth Day appear in the April 22nd square on your calendar? This day of commemoration salutes awareness of the same issues that continue to plague today’s world: Toxic, polluted air, hazardous waste dumped into waterways, and other environmental offenses that make people and animals sick.
Until 1970, it was legal to release harmful agents and there wasn’t a thing people, courts, or governments could do about it—until 1970 when U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson brought the issue to Congress, launching a domino effect that resulted in the Clean Water Act, The Clean Air Act and creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Following suit, international efforts were launched to make Earth Day a global movement. One of the first to get on board was Belize, the small nation that took to heart the implications of not going the extra mile to protect the ecological balance of its homeland. For 50+ years, this date has remained sacrosanct.
No small calendar event for Belize!
- Tropical rainforest restoration that enhances the cacao-based agroforestry program.
