Earth Day is Monday. The average American spends 90% of their time indoors.  Unplug and get outside…

Earth Day is Monday (April 22)  -  Get Unplug and Play Outside on Earth Day. Plan a family outing to a local park or nearby natural area…

Did you know? The average American spends 90% of their time indoors… Kids spend an average of 7.5 hours per day consumed by their electronics…

Be Good Stewards of our environment:  Make it a habit to turn OFF the lights when you leave any room for 15 minutes or more.  Utilize natural light when you can.

-Instead of throwing clothes in the hamper after one wear, wear them again.  FYI: Even some of the newest and most efficient clothes washers use about 15 gallons of
water per cycle.  The average family washes 400 load of laundry – that’s +6,000 gallons of water per household…just on washing clothes!

-Turn up your thermostat during the summer months.  This will help lower your energy usage and your bills.

-Switch to reusable water bottles and coffee mugs. Be eco-friendly and save money.  BTW: Coffee shops usually give you a small discount when you bring your own mug.    (The Sierra Club)

 

 

Weather permitting: You
should be able to catch the annual Lyrid meteor shower nightly through Thursday
(April 26).

No special
equipment will be needed to see an average of 10 meteors per hour in the
mid-northern sky.    EarthSky.org
suggesting that the BEST time to view the meteors should be Monday night after
10pm into Tuesday morning before dawn.          www.EarthSky.org
