Sure, it may not matter in our lifetime, but you can be certain that without active response our children-- and their children's children-- will one day suffer the bite of the litter bug. Earth Day is approaching, and year after year it seems that it's an occasion that just floats by with little recognition. It's troubling that environmental issues are constantly pushed to the back burner. Most people just don't get that in the big scheme of things, without a sustainable future for our environment nothing much else matters. So why not take action and make a difference this year? Instead of tossing your candy wrapper out the window, pick up a garbage bag of them. Scoop up that Tim Hortons cup on the side of the road, or collect the trail of McDonald's garbage. If we all pitch in, it doesn't take much time to preserve and protect the future of our precious Mother Nature. In fact, it only takes 20 minutes out of your busy schedule to make a huge difference in Halton Hills. The Second Annual Halton Hills 20 Minute Makeover and Sixth Annual Community Clean Up Day are both set to take place this weekend. Businesses, institutions, organizations and individuals are heading out into their neighbourhoods to clean up litter from Halton Hills. The Town of Halton Hills is working with volunteers to clean up everywhere from business and industrial zones to recreational and rural areas. In a joint effort, these volunteers are set to provide a face-lift to our community that we will all enjoy. Set time aside this weekend-- or any weekend-- to do your part in beautifying Halton Hills. After all, the most important environmental work happens at a local level. Think locally to give globally.
