Earth Day, Every Day: It starts with you!

studying

Spring is a time of renewal and regeneration, not just for the human spirit but for nature as well. A time to begin anew… As you take a look around, ask yourself what you can do to make your environment and the planet a better and healthier place to live. Whether you dwell in an urban or rural area or anywhere in between, there is something you can do to make a difference!

Plant a garden, recycle, ride a bicycle, refuse plastic, or simply choose to support only those companies that are doing right by the planet. There is no denying the impact an individual can have upon the environment.

Here are a few of our favorite books to help you get started or as a reminder to keep you on track. What will you choose to do?

Celebrate Earth Day with us, not just this spring but every day throughout the year!
