Sunday, April 22, is Earth Day

Kathy Kelly, Ottawa associate and Eleanor McCloskey, CND for JPIC

Earth Day 2018: This year's theme is End Plastic Pollution. Individuals, groups and schools can get more information on the extent of the problem and concrete actions they can take at https://www.earthday.org. Montreal, Victoria and other municipalities have banned plastic bags and Vancouver and other municipalities are taking steps to ban single use plastics such as take-out drink and food containers. Plastic doesn't compost so "recycled" plastic ends up in landfill

Earth Day is probably the largest civic observance in the world now, observed in some 195 countries. This is a day to enjoy fresh air, contact with soil, and touching nature in some way. Gratitude for nature and a desire to appreciate the natural world help all of us to live with more joy.
