This month, as we celebrate Earth Day and appreciate this planet’s natural wonders, we are also reminded of our role in environmental activism. Here in South Florida, we can enjoy various landscapes, from the beach to the marsh, and it’s our responsibility to protect them.
In this issue, you’ll find inspiration for promoting eco-friendly initiatives in your own life. Our feature on “Personal Shades of Green” offers tips on how to maximize energy efficiency and conserve water usage, while decreasing waste and pollution. Also, the “Green Youth Update” explains how we can educate and empower the younger generation to embrace sustainable practices. In addition, this month’s “Conscious Living” article focuses on the benefits of choosing local produce grown from pesticide-free, non-GMO heirloom seeds.
So, as Earth Day approaches, I hope this issue will encourage you to continue being an environmentally conscious community member and global citizen. As always, please email any comments or suggestions to [email protected]. Here’s to a “greener” Suncoast!
