Earth Day is this Friday!
Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 193 countries each year.
Earth Day is now considered the largest secular holiday in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year
Some predictions from 1970:
- Life Magazine wrote, "... by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half."
- Ecologist Kenneth Watt stated, "The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age."
- Watt also stated, "By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil."
Very interesting predictions to look back on with global warming and all that is impacting us now in 2016.

The cleaning industry has come a long way since 1970 with innovations in "green" products and processes. We have gone from products that were sub-par in performance and more costly to products that out perform non "green". In our opinion the E-Clean Floor Finish is the best product we have in our line of over 25 coatings. It actually gets stronger as it ages all while being Green Seal certified. Compare that with past performance of floor coatings you may have worked with. Click here to learn about the e-clean product line
Have a great day and an even better sales week!
