Happy Earth Day!

Even though it is rainy outside, be sure to celebrate Earth Day today!  Here are some simple things you can do to celebrate Earth Day:

  • Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
  • Eat a vegetarian or vegan meal.
  • Reduce your water consumption by turning off the faucet when you brush your teeth, cut back 10 minutes on your shower, or buy a reuse-able water bottle instead of buying bottled water.
  • Turn off your computer when you are done using it.
  • Recycle, weather it garbage or buying things second hand.
