Earth Day 2011 – April 22nd

As stewards of the watershed and our environment, we know it’s the small things we do in our daily lives that add up to make a big difference. Unplugging appliances that are not in use. Replacing incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient bulbs. Recycling and using re-usable coffee mugs instead of disposable ones.

It’s simple lifestyle choices like these that help us play an active role in caring for nature and the environment.

This Earth Week, you can do even more to reduce your carbon footprint and take in an event..
