There's often much confusion about Earth Day.
From wikipedia: Started nearly 40 years ago in the US, the Earth Day celebrated on 22 Apr is not a UN-sanctioned 'Day' or 'Year'. There are two websites claiming to be the 'official' Earth Day site: http://www.earthday.org/ and http://www.earthday.net/. In addition, there is a UN-sanctioned Equinox Earth Day which is celebrated around March at the annual equinox. This is managed by the Earth Society Foundation.
Nevertheless, a wide range of activities are conducted under the banner of 'Earth Day' in many countries on 22 April.
Here's some Singapore Earth Day activities in our mangroves!
