What Earth Day means to me.

earthdayposterMy first memory of Earth Day is the 1990 poster for Earth Day with the quote “No Place Like Home.”

This was the first year I was able to participant in the school’s street day cleanup because I met the height and age requirement. I remember feeling so special to pick up trash on the side of the road because the person who collected the most trash received a prize.

I did not win the prize that year but from that day on, I have always participated in recycling efforts in my home and professional life. I was so happy three years ago, when I found a copy of this poster on EBay and I purchased it to hang in my kitchen, so I can remind my family and teach my future children the importance of taking care of the earth.
