Earth Day Tribute to Mother Nature

April 22 marks the 41st Anniversary of Earth Day. A movement started by U.S. Senator, Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin in 1969. His idea was for a "National Environment Teach-In", a day set aside to stimulate awareness of the crisis state of our environment. The following spring, April 22, 1970, was dubbed, the first "Earth Day".

A celebration of our Beautiful Mother Earth and the awareness of the environmental impact we all have on our world.

Just think about it....... what we do everyday affects our water, our forests, our air, our land and pretty much, just about everything.
Take action to reduce your footprint on our earth. Educate yourself

Grow a organic Garden and/or Buy from your local farmers market

Plant a tree

Recycle ~ Reuse ~ Use less

Start a Compost

Be a smart consumer ~ Teach others

Do it for yourself, your children, your grandchildren and for all the generations to come.

Let's keep our world Beautiful! Make everyday Earth Day :) I leave you with these inspiring words spoken by so many

"We are not the owners of the land, We are the caretakers for Mother Earth"
