Hello, candle and earth lovers! Happy Earth Day! I know, I know, every day is Earth Day, but today is the official Earth Day, so here’s a little history lesson for ya …
Did you know that Earth Day was started through the efforts put forth by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin? Senator Nelson arrived in Washington in 1963, just on the heels of the 1962 release of Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. He was hoping to start a nationwide discussion on the still rather inexperienced conservation movement.
After observing the repercussions of the 1969 California Oil Spill, Senator Nelson increased his commitment to raise awareness to our environment.
