Get ready to celebrate the 45th anniversay of Earth Day on April 22. This year's theme "It's Our Turn to Lead" will inspire "random acts of greenness" around the world. Earth Day was started in 1970 by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson. After witnessing the environmental impacts of a California oil spill, Mr. Nelson wanted to harness the power of the public to make a positive impact on the environment.
Over the last few decades, this new environmental awareness has grown, and it greatly impacts the way we manufacture products. The increased focus on sustainable manufacturing has helped thousands of local manufacturers save money and the environment at the same time.
