Proposed at a UNESCO conference in 1969 by peace activist John McConnell, Earth Day is a celebration of our planet and world peace, a lofty but very worthwhile goal. The first Earth Day in 1970 brought over 20 million people together in over two thousand colleges, ten thousand primary and secondary schools and hundreds of communities. In 1990, Earth Day involved over 200 million people in over 140 countries. Today, over 1 billion people in over 192 countries will be involved in what is now the largest secular holiday in the world. It's impossible to ignore the tremendous positive impact this day has on us at work and at home these days.
Corporate Floors and Texas Carpet and Construction Recycling (TCR) celebrate Earth Day this year by offering free, single-family homeowner carpet recycling this week for any carpet dropped off at our warehouse. Commercially, we are offering free carpet sample pickup for any architect or design firm that calls to schedule a pick up at 817-552-1011.
We hope that your day is filled with a little more peace than you expect and everyone has some time today to appreciate and enjoy the beautiful world that we all borrow from our children.
