Assure a Smile is excited to celebrate the 41st annual Earth Day this Sunday, April 10th, at Pinecrest Gardens! Join this Green Miami dentist office as we gather to celebrate, appreciate, and spread awareness for the natural wonder that is our planet!
Comments by Dr. Ted Herrmann:
Spring has sprung, and the signs are everywhere! The Marlins are gearing up for a new season, Key Biscayne is swarming with weekend beach-goers, and of course, Earth Day is this here! Our practice is excited for the coming weekend as we urge all to remember that this Sunday is a time for reflection. Attending an Earth Day festival is not necessary; rather, taking time to reflect, appreciate, and share your thoughts with friends and family is the most effective way to get involved and spread Earth-honoring awareness for our natural world.
Earth Day: A History
First celebrated on April 22nd of 1970, Earth Day marks a time for appreciating our planet. The event gained worldwide attention by 1990 and is currently celebrated by over 140 nations. The holiday transcends cultural borders to remind us that the natural beauty and limited resources of our planet are to be cherished. We are challenged to consider our collective and individual environmental impact, regardless of our ethnic, religious, or ideological background. In exploring these values, we are left with an impetus to selflessly rethink and restructure our lifestyles to better preserve the earth for generations to come.
Today, over 500 million people from around the world celebrate Earth Day. Events and awareness initiatives are planned by the Earth Day Network, a multinational coalition that organizes events in over 170 countries each year.
