We did not inherit the earth from our ancestors;
we have borrowed it from our children.
Since 1970, Americans across our fair land have been celebrating Earth Day. In an effort to bring awareness to our fragile ecosystem, sustain the environment, and better care for both flora and fauna, focusing on how best to treat Mother Earth has garnered more and more support each year.
We’ve seen increases in sustainability measures like reusable shopping bags, less product packaging, and refillable container use. Folks are consciously choosing to recycle more and keep spending and travel local when they can. Public transportation users and hybrid or electric car usage has seen an uptick as people realize the impact their carbon footprints are leaving.
