Search engine giant Google on Thursday created an animated doodle celebrating World Earth Day 2021. 

Google has created the doodle marking the 51st anniversary of Earth Day that highlights how everyone can plant the seed to a brighter future – one sapling at a time!

Today’s animated video Doodle shows a variety of trees being planted within natural habitats, one of the many ways we can do our part to keep our Earth healthy for future generations.

The doodle means that the planet we call home continues to nurture life and inspire wonder. Our environment works hard to sustain us, which calls for us to return the favor. 

Every year on April 22, World Earth Day has been celebrated to raise public awareness about the environment and inspire people to save and protect it. Many individuals and organizations from across the globe participate in activities intended to world towards a healthier environment for future generations. 

This year’s theme of the day – “Restore Our Earth” and “focuses on natural processes and emerging green technologies that can restore the world’s ecosystems.” In this way, the theme rejects the notion that mitigation or adaptation is the only way to address climate change.

Earth Day is being observed on April 22 since 1970. The day is commemorated every year to highlight environmental issues like loss of biodiversity, increasing pollution among others. 

On April 22, 1970, when the first Earth Day was marked, around 10 percent of the entire United States population — back then around 20 million — took to streets across cities and colleges to protest against the negligence of the environment. The protesters also demanded a new way forward for the planet.
