Happy Earth Day!
April 22 is celebrated as Earth Day in more then 192 countries since 1970. To commemorate the event Google has created an interactive Google Doodle. The doodle is one of the best moving illustrations to come out from American giant's arsenal. It shows a host of animals, all of them wishing the viewer Happy Earth day.
As soon as the users go to Google homepage a colorful hummingbird could be seen flapping her colorful wings at the speed of light. Along with flapping her wings she is also seen sucking nectar from flowers. Next comes a pair of monkeys who are seen cozying with each other in the snowy landscape.
Then there is a jellyfish moving upside down in the black and white background, there is dung beetle trying to roll over the ball of animal manure, a bloated, rotating puffer fish and a chameleon sitting on a tree branch.
Celebrating Earth Day is one of the ways to remind people about the importance of protecting the environment. Initiatives are taken around the world to go green, so that earth could be saved from Global warming.
Here are few of the best quotes for Earth Day:
