Happy Earth Week!

by fallsneighbors on April 20, 2013

Earth Day is April 22, but Earth Week is already in full swing. Here is a letter to the editor that we sent to theĀ Town Reminder (you can see it in the April 19 issue!):

Spring has finally come to South Hadley! The last of the snow has melted away and the winds are starting to die down.

This year’s weather patterns have left behind not only the usual branches and other plant debris, but also quite a bit of litter. Litter of all shapes and sizes is still being blown around town, especially in the Falls. It’s easy just to look the other way and hope “someone else” will pick up the trash on the sidewalk.

The Falls Neighborhood Association encourages everyone to be that “someone else” this Earth Week. We challenge each South Hadley resident to fill just one small bag with litter and then dispose of it properly. (Of course, recycle those bottles and cans!) When everyone pitches in to pitch litter, we all reap the benefits immediately. This town belongs to all of us. Let us as a community come together and take care of it.

So, there is your challenge! For extra points, wear your Falls Neighborhood Association tee shirt while you’re doing your part for our environment.
