It is Earth Day once again. I try to practice Earth Day every day, not just today. My oldest grandson insisted several years ago that I start recycling at home and taking care of the planet so that long after I was gone, (his words, not mine) that there was an earth for him and his family to live on. I have a very small yard but I still manage to have a compost bucket and will for the first time get to use my own compost dirt in my container gardens this year.
I know, what does this have to do with being a paralegal? Using green measures at the office is just as important as at home. Most of us spend more time at the office than we do at home, I know I do, so why wouldn’t you do your part to help out? One of the things I do at the office is to turn off the lights when they are not needed. I don’t think we need lights on in rooms that are not occupied and I am forever going by a room and turning off the lights. I even shut them off when I leave at the end of the day, there is no need to light an office that no one is going to be in for the night! I don’t know about the state you live in, but California is energy poor and the price of using it keeps going up and up.
What will you do for Earth Day? Do you practice saving the earth every day? How important is the earth to you?
