Welcome to EARTH DAY 2013!
Earth, we call it home and we need to make a difference in saving it. This year you will notice some signs around our town of Sandwich, reminding us of Earth Day and to support your local Land Trust.
A few things of the many that YOU can do to make a difference:
- Support your local land trust, the Sandwich Conservation Trust, by donating time or funds to help us preserve natural or undeveloped land for habitat protection, recreation and visual beauty.
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
- Slow the Flow: A faucet leaking just one drop per second wastes over 1,300 gallons per year! A leak from a hot water source wastes both water and fossil fuel, creating more greenhouse gasses. Most repairs to plumbing fixtures pay for themselves within just a year. Fix it!
- Cleaning products that contain chlorine or petroleum distillates expose your family to toxins and then end up in the ecosystem. Choose nontoxic, naturally derived cleaning products, which are proven effective but won’t cause long term damage to the Earth.
- Go outside and enjoy our little place on planet EARTH!
