First of all, when did Earth Day begin? It is known that Earth Day is an annual event created to celebrate the planet's environment and raise public awareness about pollution. The first Earth Day was in 1970. Senator Gaylord Nelson, after seeing the damage done by a 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, it was inspired to organize a national "teach-in" that focused on educating people about the environment.

It is an open secret that the transport is one of the main causes of pollution. Big cities like Madrid, Barcelona and Granada are places where pollution is more serious due to the huge amount of people who use their car everyday. Although governments are taking action to face this issue, it is getting more and more serious. In fact, monuments like La Alhambra are getting black due to traffic.

What can we do to try to help the enviroment? There are a lot of ways to solve this problem, and most of them are really easy, such as: turn off your tap when brushing your teeth; stop using plastic bags; use public transport or a bike instead of your car; recycle; don’t waste food; use a refillable water bottle...

To conclude, I think that we have to raise awareness and try to do something for changing these alarming problems, as it's our responsability and by the time we are old we will be able to say that we have looked after the planet.
