Ever wonder why we celebrate Earth Day? Well, Earth Day is fast approaching and we thought we’d give a quick history lesson on how the day came to be. Earth Day is celebrated worldwide on April 22nd. It is a day that people hold sacred to support the environment and protection of it. The first time it was celebrated was 48 years ago in 1970.

Earth Day originally started as a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace. It also marked the official first day of spring on the first day it was celebrated on March 21, 1970. Presently, Earth Day is often used as a day that various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Check out the events locally to you that might be happening so you can celebrate.

In addition, we have plenty of plants and greenery at Nosegay to help you celebrate by sending a beautiful arrangement to your loved ones (or yourself).

Comfort Peace Lily Planter: Offer unspoken words of comfort, hope and peace. Our creamy white ceramic planter holds an elegant peace lily plant.

Send as a tribute, and a silent expression of your sympathies.
