Junk Sculpture (earth day)

 First earth day was held on April 22, 1970 by Gaylord Nelson.
 The first Earth Day had participants and celebrants in two thousand
colleges and universities, roughly ten thousand primary and
secondary schools, and hundreds of communities across the United
States. More importantly, it "brought 20 million Americans out into
the spring sunshine for peaceful demonstrations in favor of
environmental reform."
 Earth Day activities in 1990 gave a huge boost to recycling efforts
 Earth Day 2000 was the first year that Earth Day used the Internet
as its principal organizing tool.
 Earth Day is now observed on April 22 each year by more than 500
million people and several national governments in 175 countries.
