Every Can Can

Every Can Counts—Ellie Kehoe, EveryCanCounts employee, looks at the rainbow arch, made from recycled aluminum cans at Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens. The 2,500 recycled cans are a drop in the bucket from the reported 1.5 million drink cans not recycled yearly in the city.

     As we go electric this issue, Saturday June 5th was the 47th World Environment Day.
     Here is what you can do this Summer here in the U.S., and if you think about it, really anywhere in the world to help the environment as we emerge from COVID-19 lockdowns.
     Anyone can volunteer, and volunteering can make a difference to where you live.      Get out of your comfort zone by volunteering in the U.S. for the National Park Service, or stay local by volunteering at your farmer’s market or the equivalent elsewhere.
     Any way you choose to participate, you'll feel the positive impact of getting out of the house and caring for the planet.
