Earth Day

In case you missed it, yesterday was Earth Day.

Jeevan Jyoti, editor of the Rainbow Stamp News and moderator of the Rainbow Stamp Club Web site, reminds us all that 22 April is globally celebrated each year as Earth Day.

He writes, "It is is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in in 1970 and is celebrated in many countries every year...Earth Day helps celebrate Earth’s unique place in the universe. It is the only planet in our solar system teeming with incredible biodiversity. Learning about and protecting this biodiversity is what Earth Day is all about."

Jeevan urges us to make our earth- Cleaner, Greener & Beautiful!
