The goddess Pachamama is revered by indigenous people of the Andes. In Incan mythology, it is believe that Pachamama (translated as "Mother Earth") is a fertility goddess that presides over harvesting and planting. To give thanks to the Pachamama, people usually toast to her honor before every meeting or festivity and in some regions they spill a small amount of chicha on the floor, before drinking the rest.

So in honor of Pachamama or "Mother Earth"......Happy Earth Day! Earth day is celebrated each year on April 22nd in order to bring awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. However, every day is truly earth do something green and make it part of your daily life.
