Earth Day Celebrates 40th Anniversary

The first Earth Day was celebrated 40 years ago today. That was before the Environmental Protection Agency existed. Before the Clean Water, Clean Air and Endangered Species Acts were passed. And well before concerns over global warming.

Earth Day celebrated around the state

Earth Day is being observed throughout Vermont today with a variety of activities. In Chittenden County, an effort is being launched to reduce homeowners’ carbon emissions. And in southern Vermont, a beer company is about to invest in cleaner energy. VPR’s Ross Sneyd has more.
