Earth Day 2010: How Google Celebrated Earth Day

Google Doodles are way of Google to commemorate different events by changing their official Google logo in Google homepage. Last April 22, Google celebrated this year’s Earth Day via Google Doodle. Earth Day is a yearly celebration to increase our environmental awareness and to make conscious efforts to save Earth and Mother Nature in general.

As today’s Earth Day celebration, we all need to participate in saving our planet Earth against further devastation by talking “green”. Global warming and climate change has been hunting us ever since we become agents of pollution in our environment causing extreme weather conditions.

For Google, Earth Day 2010 celebration is about solar cooking demonstrations, classes on composting and local food sourcing, distribution of reusable shopping bags and discussions on healthy cooking and eating. It also includes hosting a speaker from “The Nature Conservancy” and giving tours of Google’s on-site 1.6MW solar panel installation and the 400kW Bloom Energy fuel cells.

It is not too late for us to act now to save our planet Earth. We need to conserve water, energy, and take good care of our environment for the benefit of all human beings not only in our generation but also for other succeeding generations ahead of us.

This year, Earth Day 2010 will also coincide with the World People’s Conference on Climate Change, to be held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and with the International Year of Biodiversity. Let us join Google and the rest of the world in celebrating Earth Day 2010.
