Going Green This Spring

By Alexandra DeBlois
On April 19, 2012

 

So much for April showers, with flowers in bloom and temperatures already reaching 80 degrees, now is the perfect opportunity to give back to the Plymouth environment.

This Sunday, Apr. 22, 2012 marks the anniversary of Earth Day and the environmental movement of 'going green'.

No one's expecting anyone to change the world overnight.  However, day by day individuals can and will participate in community-wide events in order to improve our environment just a little more than yesterday.

While the sun is still on our side, pass on the sweatbox car and hop on your long board, skateboard, or bike.  The shuttle is also running mandatory routes for the remainder of the year (hello gas money), and don't forget to take advantage of those privileges.

            Strap on a pair of rollerblades (helmets recommended for amateurs), or even those fashionable heelys made by Sketchers (no judgment) are eco-friendly.

All together, an effort to improve our environment can make a difference.

            Keep your eyes open for some local events that student organizations and local groups are putting on to conserve the Plymouth environment.
