In a typical day, a person might drive to work alone, drink coffee from a disposable cup and eat lunch from cardboard with plastic ware. These seemingly harmless activities add to the overwhelming amount of pollution to our environment. It is easy to ignore and do nothing simply because the problem seems so out of control.
There are simple environment-conscious things we can do each day like recycling cans, bottles and newspapers; using baking soda and vinegar rather than harsh chemicals for cleaning floors and counters. Little changes in the way we live can have a positive effect on the future of this incredible planet. Taking care of the planet makes life better for everyone.
“Only when the last tree has been cut down,
Only when the last river has been poisoned,
Only when the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.”
– Cree Indian Prophecy
