In 1969, Senator Nelson decided to have a special day to teach everyone about the things that needed changing in our environment. He had been worrying about the state of our planet since 1963. He wrote letters to all of the colleges and put a special article in Scholastic Magazine to tell them about the special day he had planned.

On April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day was held. People all over the country made promises to help the environment. Everyone got involved and since then, Earth Day has spread all over the planet.
