Happy Earth Day!

Everyone is putting emphasis on today, why? I dont know. I feel as though EVERYDAY is earthday and we should treat the Earth with respect EVERYDAY. Just one day is not enough. Today is offically Earth day so for those of you who don't celebrate it everyday, try to today. Ride your bike to work, recycle your plastic, paper, glass and keep the lights off during the day. Together we can save the future and make the world a better place.
There are so many small things you can do that can make a difference. Here are some tips to going green


    • Put a container for recycables beside your trash.

    • Re-use your notebooks after every class until all the papers are used up-then recycle it! ;)

    • Reuse your plastic water bottles.

    • Buy items that are made of recycled products.

  2. Use reusable grocery and shopping bags.

  3. Walk or ride your bike.
