This past Tuesday, April 22nd, we celebrated 2014’s Earth Day. This global event first began in 1970, founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson. It was designed to rally support for increased protection of the environment, giving citizen the opportunity to express their concerns and put pressure on politicians.

Today, it is an occasion both to rally support and take time to consider our environmental impact, as individuals, nationally, and globally. Local initiatives here in Baltimore have included Baltimore Green Week, including talks, forums, volunteer events, and culminating in EcoFest on Saturday, 26th April, in Druid Hill Park.

How did you celebrate?
