We all inhabit this planet, Earth. On April 22, I was without Wi-Fi so couldn’t blog on Earth Day. Then, I got to thinking…Have you heard of any ongoing information about helping save our planet? Trees were planted,many parks had information on being environmentally- conscious, people cleaned up their streets in their neighborhood and recycled what bottles and cans they found.
But, really, how many people knew about this day? I walked all around Central Park, (we were in Manhattan,NY) and there were no signs, no indication that that day was Earth Day! I confess, I used my phone to check Facebook and read a post about Earth Day!
I’m sure, the majority found out it was Earth Day by Facebook. So, I didn’t miss it. I recycle and carry a water bottle to cut down on plastics overflowing landfills and have a very long shelf-life! I saw a regular at a coffee shop, (Evergreen Cafe) that I go. They bring their mugs to refill and now, the cafe is giving mugs to encourage people not to use the disposable paper coffee cups! How cool is that?
Let’s all be environmentally -conscious and not wait until April 22, 2017! Happy Earth years!
