In honour of Canada’s 150th Birthday, events have been organized across the country to celebrate Earth Day. Focus is on the great outdoors to foster appreciation for Mother Nature and all she has to offer.
Now, more than ever, especially with our increasing preoccupation with computers and dependance on technological devices, it’s important to remember that these items are conveniences, not essential for our daily existence (I know, hard for the younger generation to imagine) but true nonetheless.
This day, make an effort to leave your technological gadgets in the house while you go outside and enjoy the fresh air. If the air where you live is not so fresh, that’s exactly the point of Earth day/week/month. This is the time to do something beneficial for yourself while helping improve your environment!
