Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to signal Earth Day today.
First celebrated on April 22, 1970, this day has today become the most important popular environmental event worldwide.
In over 100 countries, Earth Day helps promote projects to provide an awareness of the issues involved in the environment in conjunction with communities, organizations, business and individuals.
I encourage people to find out about ways of using energy, natural resources and chemicals in order to transform used material into new and to sign the reuse pledge campaign.
Let us use this day to help make people aware that the resources of this planet are very valuable so we may keep them and pass on a healthy environment to our children and to generations to come.
By doing just one thing for the environment on Earth Day, we will be contributing to world change.
