This Sunday is Earth Day.  Believe it or not, Earth Day was started in 1970.  it really hasn't been widely popular until the last few years.  There are several events around Buffalo to celebrate or help the environment.

Each year, Buffalo Exchange hosts a Dollar Day Sale to help raise awareness of this important day and donate money to one of their favorite charities, The Humane Society of the United States.
