Happy Earth Day – Street Art Style!

Earth Day is an annual event created to celebrate the planet’s environment and raise public awareness about pollution. The idea for Earth Day was proposed by Nelson of Wisconsin, after seeing the damage done by a 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, and was inspired to organize a national “teach-in” that focused on educating the public about the environment.

Another way of raising awareness and educating the public has always been through the power of public art. Street artists have a lot to say on the effects of climate change, animal welfare and people’s disregard for mother nature. So lets celebrate Earth day the only way we know how… Street Art Style, celebrating and creating awareness of mother nature and our fragile Earth.
