Seattle, WA and Earth Day have a long-standing history.
Forty-five years ago, in this very city, Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson introduced the concept of Earth day at a teach-in conference. A year later, on April 22nd, 1970, Earth Day was founded in order to amplify environmental protection as a national priority.
Since then, a number of individuals, organizations and businesses in Seattle have committed to the fundamental ideas behind Nelson’s dream-- including us at Sustainable Seattle!
While we like to think everyday is Earth Day, there are a number of local events planned to recognize Earth Day and give back to the planet. We’re also joining in and creating fun and inspirational ways to celebrate.
So gather-up your kids, friends, and loved ones and join us or the many other festivities. Earth Day in Seattle will be more exciting than ever!
