Welcome to our wondrous journey into the heart of National Earth Day. Put on your eco-friendly wooden sunglasses and organic cotton cap and step aboard our virtual, solar-powered internet time machine as we dig into the digital hills of Earth Day history.
It's national earth day on the 22nd April.
Once upon a time, in the mystic lands of the Internet realm, a novel idea started to spread like wild vines across the digital landscape. That idea was the National Earth Day. Just like a planting season, our records show that the mentions of Earth Day grew over time, thriving in the fertile soils of cyberspace.
The seed was first sown on April 22, 1970, in the offline world, a day now considered the birthday of modern environmental movement. However, it wasn’t until the digital age when the message really went viral.
While we identified a healthy 3078 mentions online, the climax of the Earth Day narrative happened on April 22, 2016. Why this specific date? Unknown to many, 2016 was the year the Paris Agreement on Climate Change was signed - an event that stirred up worldwide enthusiasm for environmental protection. This might have pressured many a keyboard warrior to make their mark.
So there you have it folks, a brief amble through history along the green path of National Earth Day, thanks to the magical internet time machine!
