Happy Earth Day! I know, I am a week late but isn't everyday supposed to be Earth Day? Sure, we all love that warm feeling we get inside as we acknowledge the need to recycle but what happens next?
The need to recycle is still necessary but our landfills are quickly reaching capacity and it seems very little is being done. I wanted to see where my garbage is going and how we are handling it locally. It is easy to sit back as we watch problems pile up across the globe thinking it is not our problem.
Nothing brings up back to reality than seeing how what we do affects the environment. I am not one to preach for I am as big an offender as the next person when it comes to recycling.
