Get Ready for Earth Day!

vip cover 2

The Earth’s core is red

The oceans are blue

We’d like to keep it that way

And you can help too!

In preparation for Earth Day 2018 (April 22, 2018) here are 5 ways you can help the cause and save the planet.

  1. Educate yourself on the threat plastics pose to the environment and animals that live there.
  2. Find your local recycling center and check out all the things that CAN be recycled you may not have known about.
  3. Organize a stream clean-up.
  4. Donate to organizations that contribute to environmental efforts.
  5. Support legislation that benefits the environment.
