49 years of environmental victories, in photos

Shared From Dlike

On the first Earth Day in 1970, an estimated 20 million people across the United States took to the streets on behalf of the environment. Spurred by the mobilization, within five years Congress created some of the most consequential environmental legislation to date: the creation of Environmental Protection Agency (1970) the Clean Air Act (1970), the Clean Water Act (1972), the Marine Mammal Protection Act (1972), and the Safe Drinking Water Act (1974).
