This Earth Day marks the 22nd year that Google has created some kind of special logo to mark the occasion. As you can see below, the creativity has really blossomed as technology (and bandwidth) have evolved to allow more interactive scenes.
Whereas last year’s doodle featured an interactive day and night scene that allowed you to cause the heavens to rain, flowers to bloom, and wake up some bears and beavers. (There were even some fireflies for those that waited long enough), this year is decidedly simple – with a variety of animals (from the dung beetle to the hummingbird) moving on screen.
Below, I’ve updated our one sheet of Google’s green logos dating back to 2001. Enjoy – and Happy Earth Day!
