Ball Earth Day 2018
Ball is committed to the conservation of the environment and together with other initiatives, has managed to celebrate Earth Day, which aims to create a common awareness of the problems of overpopulation, pollution and loss of biodiversity in order to protect the planet Earth.
The day seeks to sensitize the community of Ball including workers and administrators, before the imminent grave situation in which the planet is. In the same way, it seeks to contribute its bit by sowing these trees that will ensure the conservation of specimens of these species and will also have an impact on the viability of populations of other Sesquilé wildlife groups.
What is Earth Day?
The name “Earth Day” had been suggested by many different people, and it seemed an obvious choice for the name of this new holiday, primarily because it rhymed with birthday.
The date of April 22 was chosen because it was recognized that college students would be amongst the most active participants. April 22 would not fall during Spring Break, yet, would be before final exams. This date would also prevent conflicts with the Easter and Passover holidays. Additionally, April 22 was very close to the date of John Muir’s birthday (April 21). Muir was one of the most prominent conservationists of the late 1800s.
