As we mentioned last week, the theme of this year’s Earth Day is “The Face of Climate Change.” At EarthDay.org, you can see photos of people who are affected by climate change and people who are making a difference.
Here at CFE/Save the Sound, we’ll be observing Earth Day all week, because solving climate change will take each and every one of us doing a little more. Please join us and make your face a face of making a difference by doing one extra thing this week to improve the environment in your own community…and worldwide.
