Earth Day: Restoring Environmental Regulatory Law Protections 

On April 22, 1970, millions of Americans took part in demonstrations and community cleanups celebrating the first Earth Day. There are very few moments that have brought the world together as the environmental movement has resonated with some many people all over the world. 

The seventies heralded the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency as well as the Clean Air Act to regulate emission from power plants, factories, and cars. The Clean Water Act was also passed in the early seventies to protect our waterways from industrial and agricultural pollution as well as from sewage facilities. 

Lawyers and law firms have made significant policy changes over the years, pledging to perform pro bono legal services in support of efforts to promote environmental sustainability. Many laws have adopted sustainability initiatives, including elimination of non-reusable coffee and water cups, two-sided copying, and increased recycling.

On Earth Day, as well as every day, the legal industry is committed to taking care of the environment by embracing business practices that reduce our environmental impact while contributing to a more sustainable future for all.
