Earthlings Pay Attention

“We treat this world of ours as though we have a spare in the trunk.”

 

Since 1970, every April 22, Earth Day reminds us to do what we can to preserve this nice place we already have!  Do we have any alternative?  HELL NO…

How many pounds of trash does the United States create, per person, every day?  About 5 pounds may not seem like much, but if you multiply it by 365 days, that’s 1,617 pounds of garbage per person over a year!   The seven worst metropolitan areas for ozone pollution are all in California. No. 8 is in another state, MINE!  Yep, Houston, Texas is the eighth area!

Americans dispose of more paper but it is also the most recycled material.  I know that I love to use old magazines and newspapers for my art collages that I make.  Here is one that I made recently:

NEED WE SAY MORE

It is called NEED WE SAY MORE?  20″ x 16″

 I don’t think there is anymore to be said here…
