Turns out this year is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. 40 years is a very long time. I guess this is the reason why itis being celebrated with a bang. Earth Day was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970. He came up with this idea after witnessing the devastation caused by the massive oil spill in the coast of Santa Barbara in 1969.
From the very first Earth Day celebration in 1970, this event just grew bigger and bigger every year. This 2010 more than 190 countries participated in the event. Through this event, organizers, agencies, and concerned citizens are hoping that it would be a "turning point to advance climate policy, energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs." Also, it is hoped that more people would be aware that there something they can do, even in their little way, to help preserve Mother Earth for the future generation.
So, how did you celebrate Earth Day 2010?

It's been a while again since i updated this blog. Been busy. Anyway, have I mentioned that red is one of my most favorite color? I can't really remember if i mentioned that small detail here. Brilliant and eye-catching red, that's what I like. So, while going on a particular road, I saw this red gumamela flowers that I just couldn't resist getting a snap of. By the way this flower is also called hibiscus. Love it! What do you think?
