PR Log - Apr 21, 2012 - Shaad Hamid a freelance SEO based in Oxford, reports on his personal SEO blog about today’s 'Earth Day' Google doodle. Today's Google doodle marks the 42nd birthday celebration of ‘Earth Day‘; a day dedicated to creating awareness and promoting green economic policies around the world. Over the last 40 years, ‘Earth Day Network’ (EDN) (http://www.earthday.org/earth-day-history-movement) has executed successful environmental campaigns on issues ranging from climate change and drinking water to voter registration and saving the whale. EDN is a recognized leader in creating civically–oriented innovative programs with partners outside of the environmental movement to tackle new challenges.
Earth Day is themed around “A billion acts of green”, a campaign to get people around the world to perform a billion separate acts of environmental service.
The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, got 20 million Americans from all walks of life involved in the environment and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement.
The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.
