🌎 Happy Earth Day!
Today is an amazing reminder of how we all should work together to take care of the planet we live on. This year, the theme for Earth Day is “Invest in Our Planet™.”
This year, consider joining The Great Global Cleanup®, a global campaign to remove billions of pieces of trash from neighborhoods, beaches, rivers, lakes, trails, and parks – reducing waste and plastic pollution, improving habitats, and preventing harm to wildlife and humans. Unfortunately, the use of plastics has soared during the pandemic and greatly increased plastic pollution in our oceans, landfills, cities, highways, forests, parks, and neighborhoods.
Masks, gloves, takeout bags, plastic containers, and packaging are in abundant use, and, without proper disposal, many end up discarded on beaches, roads, lawns, parking lots, and parks where pets and wildlife can have easy access to them.
To make our planet a safer place for animals and humans, it’s going to take all of us. If you’re not already, start being more mindful and proactive about the sheer amount of plastic being strewn about. If you see a mask, gloves, plastic bags, chip bags, straws, or any other litter on the ground, please pick it up and discard it appropriately.
Let’s all Invest in Our Planet! 🌎
