Celebrating Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary
We waste so much. Thousands of things that could be reused or recycled end up along roadways or sent to landfills. Let’s inspire people to reduce waste now and for future generations through the Ozark Rivers annual Earth Day Poster and Trash Art Contest.
Waste is everyone’s problem and everyone has a role to play in the solution. The little things we can all do will, together, make a difference.
This is about taking collective strides made up of small, individual steps such as recycling electronics rather than throwing them in a trash bin, composting coffee grounds or recycling highlighters and markers through your school. That is why this year’s theme, One Change for the Planet, looks to inspire the next generation today. We have the right to live and visit places we can be proud of, and addressing the needs of our environment is an important message.
