Celebrate Earth Week - One little thing that you do can make a difference

EARTH DAY -- Wednesday, April 22rd.

This week is a good time to invest time and effort in making some greener changes in our lives to help us all to live healthier. We can improve our planet by being more conscience of how fragile and scarce our resources have become over the years of neglect and abuse.

A few ways to help, its so easy:

* EARTH WEEK begins today. Don't forget to reduce, reuse, and recyle. Many have children in the Little League. Why not, give your old equipment to someone in need. Don't let it gather
dust in your garage; give another child the opportunity to play! That would include all sports, clothes and items that you are no longer using.

* NATIONAL TURN YOUR TV OFF WEEK is April 20-26th. SO.......turn off the TV and go have a catch with your kids, ride a bike, take a walk. It will be healthy and fun for your whole family!!!

* TRY unplugging all your appliances, computer, TV's after use. You would be amazed at how much you can save in your utility bills and wasted energy overall.

* IT'S a great time to start your own vegetable garden.

* INSTEAD of having lunch delivered to your office, walk to a nearby restaurant and save take-out containers by dining in. Or bring your own container to the restaurant and have it filled there. At the very least, bring a set of your own silverware and a bottle of your favorite condiment to the office so you can skip the plastic utensils and the little packets of salt, pepper, ketchup and soy sauce.

So many things in so many little ways can go a long way. If everyone does one little thing, what a World this can become and what a legacy we will leave for our children and generations after. Let's celebrate Earth Week by living GREENER.
