This upcoming Monday, April 22 is Earth Day, the annual day in which events are held all around the world to show appreciation for our planet and demonstrate actions to help protect it.

To assist in the celebration of Earth Day, ACEEE interviewed the Day’s founder, Denis Hayes. Back in the 70s, Hayes, “read about a fledgling environmental movement. Determined to volunteer, he flew to Washington, DC, with the intention of organizing Earth Day at Harvard. Instead, he became the organizer for Earth Day across the entire United States.”

Read the full interview to see how energy efficiency has played a role in Earth Day.
