Earth Day is an annual event for people around the world to celebrate the earth and renew commitments to building a safer, healthier and cleaner world for everyone. The first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970, and over the years has grown into a major event which is celebrated simultaneously around the globe by more than half a billion people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities.

In this our very first Earth Day event at deviantART, we are proud to support The Nature Conservancy, the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. Working in all 50 states and more than 30 countries, The Nature Conservancy have protected more than 117 million acres of land and 5000 rivers worldwide, operating in more than 100 marine conservation projects globally.

With over 7 million artists, deviantART is the largest online art community in the world. We're delighted to present a showcase of environmentally themed works from artists who have been deviously creative in an attempt to raise awareness of environmental issues in the world today.

In support of Earth Day, deviantART will donate 10% of all prints sales from our Store on Earth Day (April 22nd) to The Nature Conservancy, and we invite you to support this cause as well as supporting your favorite artists.

Celebrate our earth through art!

Life on this planet is the reason the universe exists. If we ruin that... then what is the point of it all? Celebrate the days you walk on her, and morn the times we hurt her. Most importantly learn how not to hurt her again. Happy Earth Day everyone.

Happy Earth Day everyone!! :party: :clap: :love:

We only have one earth, so don't be lazy. Here's a few simple tips to get you motivated:
:bulletred: Recycle ever bit of whatever you can, no matter how small
:bulletred: Unplug things that are not in use
:bulletred: Run as little water as possible
:bulletred: Turn of lights when not in use (use as little lighting as possible)
:bulletred: Volunteer to plant a tree or anything else that would involve helping the environment
:bulletred: Walk/Ride a bike to where ever it is your going as much as possible
So please just put in that little bit more effort for a cleaner environment. Every little bit helps!

Be sure to swing by my page sometime soon, I'll be posting a journal dedicated to earth day with a very long list of extremely helpful tips and things you may not know.

:w00t: Yay!

One of my favorite things (art) doing good for another of my favorite things (nature)!

(And also I'm happy because I work for The Nature Conservancy and this is kinda indirectly helping me stay employed...) But it would be awesome even if that weren't true!

Earth is the only home we got, we don´t have the technology to travel to other worlds, and why should we? Earth can be a very beautiful and nice place to live on. Just look at all facinating things in nature it´s unbelivable, our planet is unique and I like to share it with all the living things on this planet. It´s selfish to claim this planet just for the humans, all the other creatures have the right to live here. It wouldn´t be so nice and beautiful without the wild spaces like rainforests, coral reef or the taiga. It´s good that someone is doing something to save this planet from destuction and pollution, if we destroy this planet we have no where else to go.

That´s good!:) one day we had a tree planting day in school. My class planted six trees and that was just my class. I have also managed to grow a chestnut tree, it´s quite big now. I hate when people cut down trees, they have cut down two huge trees in the area where I live :(, they said that the trees root system were threatening the water pipes, I don´t know, but it´s a pity.

I think It's actually appropriate. :} It's nice to actually see an organization, and the people surrounding, and being memebers of it, supporting the earth, and out mother nature. :}

Happy Earth Day! :hug:
