Nationally, 2015 marks forty-five years since the very first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. Originally intended to raise awareness and change how we, the U.S., dealt with pollution, pesticides, and oil spills in the 60s, Earth Day is now recognized world-wide. Today the emphasis is on how each person can make a difference. That is why the Earth Day Alliance is asking children, teens and adults of all ages, organizations: non-profits, businesses, government agencies, clubs, schools, churches, etc. throughout San Luis Obispo County to take action and be part of the solution.
