Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day

Early poster for original Earth Day (Earth Week)

Little did we know back in 1970 that the need for more awareness of how to live consciously on this planet would be even more urgent 40 years later.  But there it is.  Is there any better work than caring for mother earth? Each of us making little changes, creates a big change. Thank you for doing what you.  Never get discouraged, never give up.  I, for one, commit to being bolder and more imaginative this year.  Suggestions as to how to live that, highly welcome!

  1. Martha Stewart actually had the artist, Martin Carey, of this original 1970 Earth Week poster on her show. She also had the entry art posters from NYC school kids for Earth Day. Some really great art! The winner is still to be chosen. You can check it out here: http://www.marthastewart.com:80/show/the-martha-stewart-show/earth-day-show

    Here is my favorite piece of art from a 3rd grader! Fabulous! http://community.wholeliving.com/photo/edouard-beauzille-3rd-grade?context=latest

    And here you can find a nice article on the original photo shots of earth from the moon; and a piece and photo of the original 1968 Whole Earth Catalog. Now those were the good old days!
