As we celebrate Spring, with the sun shining and flowers blooming, lets remember Earth Day this month of April.
On Sunday April 22nd, is the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day. This movement is designed to mobilize individuals of every age, from all over the world to improve energy efficiency, embrace new technology for climate change and greening our planet. To call upon local, national and international leaders to put an end to the destruction of our planet. We need a world for our children, and our children’s children, to live more green and sustainable. Free from toxic chemicals polluting the air, and the food we eat.
The Earth Day campaign will run several campaigns, all to inform you of the importance of this movement. To learn more and get involve, please visit: http//www.earthday.org/2012.
