Earth Month Clean up – sponsored by Viridian
“The Earth does not belong to us: we belong to the Earth.” – Marlee Matlin
This is Earth month, and tomorrow will be Earth day. While I love the fact that many people gather together to clean parks, and celebrate the earth, what I find sad is that we only focus on this once a year, while we should be focusing on this all year. What is equally sad is that we have to focus on this, and spend our days cleaning out plastic bags from ponds, picking up cigarette butts from parks and racking out trash off our street corners. Our children can teach us a lot about taking care of our earth. Bring your own bags to the supermarket. Recycle, reuse, conserve. Reduce energy consumption.
Please share with me how you are making a difference this Earth Month.
