Since the industrial revolution humans have spilled oil in the sea, polluted the air and land with chemicals, cut down vast areas of rainforest and driven some animals to extinction. Naturally, this has not sat well with Earth’s more environmentally conscious inhabitants.
On April 22nd 1970, millions of people from all walks of life marched on to the streets across America, united by the desire to end these decades of environmental degradation. 50 years later, Earth Day has become a global annual event, urging everyone to do their bit to curb climate change, prevent pollution and save endangered species.
As part of the Scouting movement, we have a responsibility to care for the planet as much as for each other, and by taking small steps together we can make big changes.
