According to an article today on the front page of Yahoo, since the first Earth Day 40 years ago, smog has dropped 25% and lead levels in the air are down 90% (did anyone know there were high levels of lead in the air??? News to me, although I was only 5 at the time;)
And although carbon dioxide levels are up 19%, we are making huge strides in our awareness and our efforts to preserve our precious planet.
Several years ago, my daughter picked up trash around our home on Earth Day. Tonight, she’s planning to have the lights off (sounds like an adventure!). But more importantly, we recycle everyday and try to be mindful about the effects we have on mother earth.
As we celebrate and conserve today, let’s try to remember that truly, “Everyday is Earth Day.”Share on Facebook
