Earth Day is basically it’s a global celebration of Earth’s gifts. It’s also day
set aside to spread awareness of people’s destructive behavior on the
environment.

No matter what side of the political spectrum we are on,
this day is one where we can reflect on the beauty that surrounds us and the
amazing resources we have.  It’s also a
day  to think about making small changes that add up.  In my house, we’re trying hard to reduce the
amount of items we put into the landfills.  We’re making  changes in the way we shop and how we bring
our items home.
Recently while out on a leisurely
drive, I passed a large landfill and I realized that  many don’t ever see these
places or maybe even think about where our trash ends up.  It had been perhaps 10 or 15 years or more since I’d
seen one.  I’m positive that our steps like
using fewer water bottles, less paper as well as taking our own bags to the
store can help reduce the rate at which this and other landfills grow.
At our office we take great pride in being paperless.  We’ve done that since we started back in 2005.  While it’s not easy to do this in real estate, we made it happen because it’s important to us.
