"For each of us there is some mission in life if we but find it. All have some definite thing to do, something for which they have been created; and only the doing of this thing will justify their existence here on earth. If we come into the world and occupy space and time without giving back for this privilege, we have not justified ourselves, and our lives in the end are barren." ~ Hay

Every Day Can Be Earth Day! 10 Things You Can Do……

1.        Plant a tree or tend a garden.

2.       Stop using plastic bags and find a place near you that recycles them.  Bring your own reusable bags when you shop.

3.       Stop buying plastic water bottles.  Buy BPA free-lined stainless bottles instead.

4.       Use dark sky lighting.

5.       Put power strips on your appliances and turn them off at night or when not in use.

6.       Support your local farms.

7.       Condense your shopping trips.

8.       Recycle as much as possible.  Consult your town guidelines for items such as batteries, paints and medicines.

9.       Donate some of your time to community sponsored cleanup projects.

10.   If you can walk somewhere instead of taking a car, do it!
