Earth Day….it’s here again…another reminder to preserve and protect our environment.
Think about it. What steps do you take each and everyday to make a difference for our earth….the place we all share?
Photography is an important part of my life…it’s one of many passions. I love to be in the forest and by the sea and enjoy our natural surroundings. If I don’t take simple steps to protect my environs, who will? I can’t just count on others to make the changes needed…I need to be part of it as well.
I’m no hero. However, my conscience in this realm continues to be developed to the point that I recycle bottles, cans, juice containers, newspapers, cardboard, and plastics. I also think about the amount of energy I consume and try to remember to turn off lights I’m not using and lower the thermostat at bedtime and when I go out.
I take clothes I no longer wear and household items I no longer use to one of the many local charitable organizations so that they can pass them on to those less fortunate.

Hopefully it will inspire you to think about Earth Day and how you can make a small difference each and everyday.
