Celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd by…soaking in a hot tub!
Monday, April 22nd is the day set aside in 2019 to celebrate Earth Day, meant to heighten awareness of the gift of our planet’s natural environment. Founded in 1970 in the U.S., Earth Day has grown into a globally recognized date, now celebrated in more than 175 countries.
Earth Day Today
Since the year 2000, the focus has been on global warming and a push for clean energy. With 5,000 environmental groups in a record 184 countries reaching out to hundreds of millions of people, Earth Day 2000 combined the big-picture feistiness of the first Earth Day with the international grassroots activism of Earth Day 1990. Earth Day 2000 used the power of the Internet to organize activists, but also featured a drum chain that traveled from village to village in Gabon, Africa. Hundreds of thousands of people gathered on the National Mall in Washington, DC for a First Amendment Rally. Earth Day 2000 sent world leaders the loud and clear message that citizens around the world wanted quick and decisive action on global warming and clean energy.
- According to the Water Systems Council, soaking in a bathtub averages 50 gallons for each use; taking a 10 minute shower can use even more—50-100 gallons for each shower!
- Take a bath three times per week for six months and you’ll likely use 3,600 gallons of water! You could enjoy a soak in a hot tub every night of the week and save thousands of gallons of water…that’s quite simply good math.
Happy Earth Day!
