Every April 22, the world stops to recognize Earth Day. In 1970 the first Earth Day was initiated to stop the destruction of our environment and to preserve our world for future generations. Instead of factories belching black, toxic smoke into the air, factories dumping toxic waste into our water systems, the unlimited use of pesticides, and the destruction of the wilderness and loss of wildlife, people took a stand to stop this savage destruction.
People today are more environmentally conscious and schools make a big push to educate our children to care for our earth. Even the simplest thing as not littering makes a big difference and is an easy lesson for our kids and for us to learn and do.
E-books are environmentally friendly. We can save our trees and gas, and eliminate trash by downloading e-books. Thousands of books can be stored digitally on e-readers and reading devices. (At this time there is some concern about what will happen to the obsolete e-reading devices.)
I am recognizing Earth Day by giving away my mystery/suspense e-book, Sunshine Boulevard, to a commenter on this blog via a random drawing. Just leave an idea on how we can help save our environment in our own way. For instance, we turn off lights when we leave the room. How about you? Winner will be chosen Monday April 23 at 9 pm.
We will all be winners if we have a healthy environment!
