Flexo Sustainable : Earth Day 2013
Happy Earth Day 2013! Earth Day was created to raise awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. Thanks to U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson (D-WI), we celebrate Earth Day every April 22. He believed that the state of the environment was not considered an important issue in politics and decided to go straight to the boss, President John F. Kennedy. After years of promoting his cause, the date was solidified in 1970. All over the nation, events are held in celebration and recognition of Earth Day. Earth Day Network (EDN) www.earthday.org is a good resource if you’re looking for programs and activities. You can search for programs, campaigns, and special events, or search for events by location. The 2013 theme: “The Face of Climate Change.” The U.S . Environmental Protection Agency also offers a comprehensive list of events and volunteer opportunities for Earth Day enthusiasts at http:// www.epa.gov/earthday/events.htm. Over the years, many of FTA’s members have been recognized for making great strides in protecting the environment and have received FTA Environmental Excellence Awards. The most recent winners will be announced at the FTA Annual Forum in San Diego. See the May issue of FLEXO Magazine for details. So get out there and spread the word! Implement programs in your facility. Pick up garbage in your neighborhood or park. Think about planting a tree or flowers locally. Whatever you do, remember you can make all the difference in the world! www.flexomag.com earth day 2013 Sustainable FLEXO 3
