This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. In 1969 founder Gaylord Nelson came up with the idea for a national day to focus on environmental issues after Nelson witnessed the ravages of a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 and has since grown into a global event recognized in 193 countries, and many people extend the celebration to make it Earth Week.
