Earth Day was first celebrated 40 years ago, as a means of increasing awareness of Mother Earth and how we can do our part to take care of protecting and preserving our environment. Perhaps today is a day to take a personal inventory of what we each are doing to care for our own little piece of the world, make changes to reduce our own personal carbon footprint, and increase our participation in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle efforts. Perhaps this is a day to plant a tree, plant some flowers, clean up some litter in a public area, or do something else to make our planet a bit nicer! Think GREEN!! Enjoy the day!!
