Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God's greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.

"Our fisher folks go to sea and plastics comes out instead of fishes". The accumulated plastic will be brought to land for recycling. In 1990's the day started to be celebrated globally and today 192 countries celebrate it by planting trees and cleaning their towns and cities.

"Through this ambitious alliance we will build on the UK's world-leading microbeads ban and 5p plastic bag charge to harness the full power of the Commonwealth in pushing for global change and safeguarding our marine environment for future generations", said Gove.

"Protestors from many walks of life gathered to spread information on environmental issues and to proclaim their plan to stay active until pro-environmental policies were enacted", says Earth Day Network President Kathleen Rogers.

Over the last four decades, the EPA and similarly-organized state agencies, like Massachusetts' own Department of Environmental Protection, have managed to dramatically reduce air and water pollution around the country along with their effects on public health.

Earth Day Network, the organization that leads Earth Day worldwide, announced that Earth Day 2018 will focus on mobilizing the world to End Plastic Pollution, including creating support for a global effort to eliminate single-use plastics along with global regulation for the disposal of plastics.

Each year, Earth Day awakens a renewed sense of awareness about the importance of nature in our lives.

A 2018 study, using data from vessel and aircraft surveys, found that 79,000 tons of plastic are floating in an area spanning 1.6 million square kilometers (about 618,000 square miles). "We can take a step in this direction by putting an end to plastic pollution", Banerjee tweeted this morning.

Plastic particles and plastic microbeads are used in our shampoo, toothpaste, soap and millions of other products, all of which contain different kinds of tiny particles of plastic, all of which come off in our bodies, our mouths, our scalp and our skin as we use them. Several concerned authorities across the world will educate, mobilise and activate citizens to control and clean up pollutions.

In Attleboro, Capron Park Zoo will focus on the conservation of endangered species at its Earth Day event, from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. Sunday.
