Happy Earth Day!!!

Although we have come along way in taking measures to protect our precious earth and make it a much cleaner place to live, we still have much more we can do...

Some ways we can help are to:

1. Drive less, Carpool more, Utilize public transit (especially with rising gas prices!)

2. Reduce the "stuff" you purchase, reuse instead of disposing, and recycle

3. Avoid toxic plastics (primarily Bisphenol A, also known as BPA, and phthalates)

4. Conserve water (fix those leaky faucets!)

5. Buy Organic

6. Compost

7. Tell elected officials the environment really matters to you (don't forget to vote accordingly!)

Together we can and will make a difference!

Today and everyday, be conscious of our Earth!!!
