The History of Earth Day, Reno North, Nevada

Dorinda's Chocolates has a long standing goal using, exclusively, chocolate from the best manufacturers in the world who all practice environmentally sustainable farming techniques. Earth Day celebrates environmental protection and Squaw Valley hosts a great event every year in honor of this holiday. 

In 1969 John McConnell proposed the original idea of Earth Day. However, instead of celebrating this holiday on April 22nd, as is the current practice, McConnell wanted the day recognizing environmental protection to take place on March 21st. This is the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. 

Less than a month later, another Earth Day was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson. Nelson, who was originally elected to the Wisconsin State Senate began talks with President John F. Kennedy and eventually persuaded him to embark on a national speaking tour in 1963. Earth Day then became a teach-in event on April 22nd, 1970. It would not be until 1990 however, that Earth Day would go International under the reign of Denis Hayes.
