Happy Hour BeachStarting with Rachel Carson’s bestselling novel Silent Spring in 1962, the modern environmental movement began. The first Earth Day followed in 1970 as a global movement to stem the tide of pollution and damage we cause to this planet on a daily basis. The images today are from Keith’s 1970’s archives to  celebrate the first Earth Day.
