Earth Day Bethesda 2013

Reduce, reuse, recycle….  It sounds simple enough but I will be the first to admit to the occasional laziness of tossing a plastic bottle in the trash because there is no readily available recycle bin or running the water while I brush my teeth once in a while.  The little things we do or don’t do can seem to be just too small to matter in the grand scheme of things.  Yet, when you multiply your actions by the number of people in our town, let alone our country, the cumulative effects of these “small choices” obviously make a BIG daily impact.  Earth Day reminds us to be aware.  Be aware of the choices we make that together add up to something significant.

Montgomery County has a great resource available on their website to instruct the public about how to recycle or dispose of wastes like household batteries, paint, cell phones, fire extinguishers, appliances, scrap metal, old furniture and more.

The town of Bethesda has made a collective effort to become aware and make better choices by forming Bethesda Green.  You can read all about Bethesda Green in our featured article written in 2011, It Ain’t Easy Being Green or by visiting the Bethesda Green website.  Bethesda Green offers all kinds of  resources to “help educate yourself about the environment, your community, and how you can help.”

Today, for Earth Day in Bethesda, why not check out Bethesda Green?  Perhaps you will learn something new, find an organization in which you wish to participate or simply make a small donation to further their efforts to better our community.
