Thirty nine years ago today, the very first Earth Day was celebrated. I realize that some reading this weren't even born thirty nine years ago. Nearly 20,000,000 Americans participated with the primary goal being to create a sustainable environment. Nearly forty years later, Earth Day has become a global phenomenon.
What does Earth Day mean to you? To me, it's a time to focus on our mother earth and see what steps all of us can take to preserve and even improve the quality of life and preserve our precious natural resources. Here are a few simple steps you can take.
- Recycle - It's so easy and it makes such a difference. If it's paper, plastic, glass or metal, don't throw it away, recycle it so it can be used again.
- Use flourescent bulbs - They cost a bit more initially, but consume 75% less power and last ten times as long as conventional light bulbs.
- Enjoy the outdoors and share you stories and photos. Clean up if you see trash. Nature.org
