Commitment to Earth

Earth Month has come and gone. Environmental activism was a hot topic from Earth Hour on March 29th through the end of April. However, since it’s gone—now what?

Do we put away our reusable shopping bags and go back to plastic? Start buying bottled water again? Stop ride-sharing? Of course not! Even though the day is gone, with pollution on the rise and earth’s resistance to it on the decline, we still need to take charge and do something to help save our planet.

Expanding everyone’s awareness of this important cause is critical to our future and the well-being of the entire planet. In honor of Earth Day—everyday—we're asking people to commit to continuing your part in reducing your carbon footprint.

Visit Web sites like SarasNow, EarthEasy or The Neststore to find out what you can do to help save our planet.

As part of our environmental responsibility, we’re making Earth Day last all year long. By recycling, reusing, reducing and educating, we are protecting and restoring the Earth’s resources. Get Active. Go Green.—delmetria millener, thawriter@yahoo.com
