April 22, 2018, is the 48th anniversary of EARTH DAY!!

What is Earth Day anyway? It’s a celebration for appreciation of our dependence upon the earth and its environment- air, soils, water, plants and wildlife. We, humans the environment, are all interdependent upon each.

So, do something for the Earth, if only one little thing, if only for a day:

  • Plant a tree
  • Plant a native plant,…. or plant anything
  • Take a short shower
  • Don’t smoke a cigarette
  • Get your vehicle tuned up
  • Take your used motor oil to be recycled
  • Teach your children to recycle
  • Don’t throw trash on the ground
  • Pick up someone else’s trash?!

If you can do it once, try doing it more often! Celebrate our interdependence with care and support.
