The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
In honor of the 2016 Earth Day theme, I would like to introduce you to Douglas Fir.
First, not many people would know that there has been an environmental problem solved by our consumption of essential oils, involving trees - specifically Douglas Fir. So while planting trees is an awesome mission - sometimes recycling trees is what is good for a specific ecosystem. For earth day, I'm supporting the planting of trees and incorporating Douglas Fir Essential oil into my life - to celebrate the work that gets done on Earth Day when we all look at the issues and do one thing to make the world a better place.
