Earth Day Gifts / February 25, 2019 / Chris Burris.
Finding the best Mother s Day gifts are sometimes in the hardest things during the Mother s Day season. It is a big holiday and the numbers of gift options are infinite. I guess the best way to hone in on a gift would be to start with what personality type your mom is then branch out from there. There are five popular personality types we will discuss and they include the PTA mom the newbie mom mother earth mom runway model mom Martha Stewart mom. The PTA mom is a woman who is actively involved in juggling multiple social events pertaining to the lives of her children and is intimately involved in their lives.
In 1970 Earth Day was the hip idea of a New Age flower culture but by 1990 Earth Day went global uniting 141 countries in making environmental issues a central focus (concern). The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Earth Day broadens the base of support for environmental programs rekindles public commitment and builds community activism around the world celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds faiths and nationalities. Earth Day is a nurturing holiday that builds and expands organizations communities and networks.
Manufacturers looked at ways to reduce toxic by-products and appear environmentally responsible to their customers. Their marketing campaigns highlighted eco-friendly actions like reducing environmental waste. Resurgence Even with progressive responsibility people did not celebrate Earth Day as they had in the beginning year. Celebrations were still held but they weren t as widely attended or announced. In 1990 the original Earth Day coordinator Dennis Hayes organized a worldwide Earth Day. For the thirtieth anniversary of Earth Day Hayes planned for a global celebration with participation from countries around the world.
However after the formation of post-partition India this custom though still very strong in Nepal is existent only among the Nepali and Gorkha communities in India. The reason of this being that Mata Kunda itself now falls in a separate country Nepal. This festival is born around a legend of Krishna and his mother Devaki. Motherhood is universally recognized and revered in India in both religion and mysticism. Little surprise then that the international or rather U.S. culture of celebrating Mother s Day on the 2nd Sunday of May has found ready acceptance in India.
Approximately 20 million people celebrated the first Earth Day. In America participation was high in schools which ten thousand grade schools and high schools two thousand colleges participating. Amazing numbers considering the event started as a grassroots movement. Government Actions The strength of the Earth Day movement was clear to legislatures. Following Earth Day s success the U.S. government passed laws that targeted cleaner living. In 1970 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was established. The Clean Air Act followed with a focus on reducing air pollution with the Clean Water Act doing likewise for water clean-up in 1972. The U.S. also passed the Endangered Species Act to protect animals from extinction.
