Feel Good About What YOU do!
April 22nd is Earth Day 2017 and more than one billion people worldwide will take some action to protect this planet and the environment. The act can
be as simple as planting a single tree or picking up one piece of litter. Each act and each person, young or old, can make a difference. That is what this grassroots environmental movement is all about. Earth Day was created by Gaylord Nelson, a Senator from Wisconsin, in 1970, to increase awareness of environmental problems. From its humble beginnings and simple concept, Earth Day is credited with the creation of the EPA and The Clean Air and Endangered Species Acts. Over the past 45+ years, Earth Day has grown to the largest annual environmental event worldwide. Here are some simple ways to celebrate Earth Day 2017:
- Walk or bike the kids to or home from school
- Plant something, preferable something edible
- Begin a recycling program at home or at work
- Turn off the lights
- Donate, reuse, up-cycle items that you are not using
- Feed the birds
- Visit Earth Day Network for more ideas www.earthday.org
Or better yet, contact Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org We will donate 50 trees to Earth Day Network’s Trees for the Earth for each NEW sponsor in the month of April. So, feel good about what YOU do and sign up to sponsor today!
The need for a clean environment continues and we hope you will be a part of it, we certainly will continue to clean the highways and recycle wherever we can!
