What does Earth Day mean to you?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Kayla Layaoen.

"It means that my family will probably turn off all the lights and I'll have to go without internet or electricity. They do this every year."

Kazu Kogachi, Cupertino

"To be honest, I haven't been that Earth-conscious, but I think that Earth Day is really important because we need to be environmentally friendly."

Regita Soetandar, Sunnyvale

"I remember Silent Spring. Rachel Carson wrote that book in the '60s about how what we are doing to the environment reflects on our own health. So it's a day to reflect on Rachel Carson and think about the Earth."

Brian Irvine, Palo Alto

"It is a day that helps create more awareness. Definitely try to do your part, and find something if you're not already doing something to help protect the environment."

Lorena Villagomez, Hollister

"Earth Day is an international day where we appreciate nature and celebrate life — even though we should be doing this every day."

Sravya Bathula, Fremont
