Happy Earth Day! Things to Do and What We Are Not Doing!

It’s been 42 years since the first time Earth Day was recognized and celebrated in 1970 and 22 years since Earth day has been noted on a  global scale. This Earth Day we are not offering any specials. We have decided that Earth Day is not about us and increasing our business by using Earth Day as a sale or promotional opportunity - it’s about the Earth, recognizing our impact on the environment and participating in activities that are beneficial to the cause. So, here are a few activities that you can do or participate in, even if you think you’ve exhausted every way to honor Earth Day, check out these things to do that will bring attention to giving back to the environment, instead of just taking.

- Walk around your town or city and pick up trash

- Plant a tree
