Did You Know?
Facts & Figures about
Celebrating and
Saving Mother Earth

April 21 : 01 day till Earth Day

Did you know that the Earth’s population has grown faster since 1950 than over the previous four million years combined?

Today, there are 6.5 billion people living on the planet, with another 74 million people are added every year. Yet just two hundred years ago, there were barely 1 billion people on Planet Earth. The term “population explosion” seems like a ridiculous understatement.

Earth Day is a day to both celebrate the environmental victories of the past and to reflect on the many remaining opportunities for improvement. Whether you celebrate Earth Day by attending a rally, signing a petition or switching to highly efficient light bulbs, make an effort to be mindful of the original vision for this day: to serve as a national learn-in for the sake of the environment.

Join our Earth Day celebration as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Earth Day on April 22nd!
