Boston Earth Day Overview

In 2009, the United Nations agreed to name April 22nd International Mother Earth Day to recognize the importance of the world’s vital ecosystems. Nearly forty years before in 1970, United States Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day and drew over 20 million participants to its first celebration. Today, more than one billion people in 200-plus countries across the globe celebrate Earth Day annually.

America’s most patriotic city, Boston, joins in on the Earth Day party, becoming one of the nation’s most environmentally conscious cities in April.

Earth Day in Boston boasts a myriad of Earth Day events like the Charles River Cleanup. Though a famous song called “Dirty Water” is one of Beantown’s anthems, around 3,000 volunteers pick up trash along the water to make it look as clean as possible.

Individuals who want to look as sparkling as the Charles attend the Earth Day Eco-Beauty Bar, which features mini-massages, spa treatments, and samplings of organic skin care and eco-friendly wellness products. Meanwhile, Earth Day celebrations like Earth Day on the Greenway provide fun for the whole family with face painting, music, games, and food trucks.

Boston might be known for its Red Sox, but April brings a host of green events that make Beantown one of the most festive metropolises on Earth Day.
