Earth Day is Saturday, April 22, and we are reminded that we need to do our part to help keep our planet, and scaled down…our own neighborhood, beautiful. We plant trees, collect debris and refuse from our parks, gutters, and streets, and try to save on our fuel and use of energy. We will stand tall in our beliefs and efforts which truly help to bring about change. By collecting what has been rejected, we are taught how to discard safely and securely.
Many cities preside over programs that we can take part it, such as festivals, to bring awareness, and how to beautify our world, although, locally.
It is up to each one of us to make a difference. We should always keep our responsibility to clean up and give back to the planet, in mind. For just one day a year, it’s time to toss the calendar, and readjust how we think about doing our part.
Many schools donate class time to Earth Day. Speakers may visit classrooms and educate students on how they can help, and why it’s in their best interest to adopt good housekeeping habits now and far into the future. Some look to this day each year to be together, volunteer, and thrive as a family. It’s a win-win!
Blue Star Company, Inc., has served as a catalyst in recycling for good. Hosting free recycling events for large corporations, Blue Star teaches the proper way to handle e-waste and how to correctly recycle items safely. (Blue Star Company provides out-of-use electronic (e-waste) pickups for businesses and corporations throughout the year.)
Be aware that there are many locations hosting clean-up events in your area. There are many activities, again, designated for education and entertainment. Plant a tree to bring back foliage and bloomers, creating gardens or rows of beauty.
You may want to bike to an event in your city to cut down on emissions, while getting your “healthy on.” Find a safe trail that takes you to places that might need a little love.
Be safe, be healthy, be environmentally conscious. What do you have to lose…besides an unhealthy environment?
