Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day, the one day of the year that we celebrate Mother Earth. But really, we should be doing so everyday. It's a bit like a holiday; you don't tell that special someone that you love them only on Valentine's Day, right? We should be taking care of our Mother Earth everyday.

Go Green! Alexandria is a new non-profit in Alexandria that is encouraging residents to take care of our community. We host park and stream cleanups, educational forums and support the City of Alexandria's Eco-City Initiative as well as other environmental outreach. Be sure to check out our website at www.alexenvironment.org.

What are you doing to take care of the environment? Email us at info@alexenvironment.org.


Heather Schaefer is the Founder and Executive Director of Go Green Alexandria, dedicated to environmental education and outreach. Find out more on Go Green Alexandria
