Mr. Squirrel wants to say “Happy Earth Day!”
Waste and Recycling Workers Week supports Earth Day
Let’s do our part and contribute to the global effort to make our world more sustainable and environmentally friendly. We believe that our children and the generations to come deserve to live in a healthy world.

- What would Earth Day be without planting a tree? Planting trees, flowers, and herbs around your home helps to decrease the emission of greenhouse gases naturally.
