Earth Day began as a protest . In 1963 , former U.S Senator Gaylord Nelson worried about our planet . He knew that our world was getting dirty and many of our plants and animals were dying . He wanted people to show that they were worried about the environment . This was in September , 1969 . Senator Nelson wrote letters to all of the colleges and put a special article in magazines . It was to tell about the special day he had planned . Soon , the New York Times made an announcement that there would be a national day for the environment .
On April 22 , 1970 , the first Earth Day was held . Gaylord Nelson did not expect Earth Day to be so popular . However , nearly 20 million people attended . Since then , Earth Day has continued to change and grow . Later , the United Nations decided that Earth Day should be celebrated every year .
