April 22 marks the anniversary of the first celebrated “Earth Day” in 1970. According to the official Earth Day website, it was the brainchild of a Wisconsin Senator named Gaylord Nelson. Troubled by the devastating effects of the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, Nelson decided to fuel the energy in the current anti-war movement to raise awareness of environmental protection. Environmental policies started to make their way in the national agenda. Protesters of power plants, extinction of wildlife, and oil spills started to ban together on a unified front to get legislation passed to protect our environment. And after the first national “Earth Day” was celebrated, the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts were passed.
Earth Day does a lot to remind us each year of our responsibility for keeping our habitat healthy as well as pursuing options in clean energy. Here are three tabletop fountains which, while being beautiful, will serve as a constant reminder of our part in what Earth Day stands for:
Rustic Tree Waterfall Tabletop Fountain- Modeling an old, weathered tree, water spills from the top and twirls down the center view, collecting in the pool below. The LED lighting gives this fountain a mystical look and has an overall organic style to it.
Waterfall Log Tabletop Fountain- This one has a horizontal, zig zag water flow through the fountain. Again, mimicking the look of an old forest log, water streams through the crevices into the hallowed log below. Also fitted with LED lighting, you can enjoy the fountain at night as well.
Cascading Waterfall Tabletop Fountain- Embodying a mini stone waterfall look, water trickles across the rock creating soothing water sounds. The LED light gives the flowing water a mesmerizing look.
Organic in design and soothing in style, these three fountain symbolize the natural beauty Earth Day was created to protect. To view more detail of these tabletop fountains, click here.
