Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!


Today marks the countdown to Earth Day’s 50th anniversary in 2020. Mary invites Susan Bass of the Earth Day Network onto the show, who takes us back to the very first Earth Day in 1970, and how it bears a stark resemblance to where we are at today.


Mary & Susan look at the circumstances that led to a huge, nationwide effort by American workers, mothers and students, and how it encouraged President Richard Nixon to establish the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Environmental Protection Agency.


Today, Earth Day is a global event of political action and civic participation.


Let us know how you’re celebrating Earth Day with your community, by tagging @mothersinvent and @earthdaynetwork on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. We’ll give a shout out to our favorite submission on the next episode!
