March 2013: Here Comes Spring!
Click Here here for a printable version of the March newsletter.
Being Green is not only about St. Patrick’s Day. It is also about caring for our environment and trying to change the way we do things so that we stop harming and polluting the world around us. Earth is facing massive problems at the moment, but everyone can do something to help. There are many problems facing our planet. Much of the air is no longer clean to breathe; a lot of the land and many rivers and oceans are polluted. Tropical rain forests are being chopped down. Plants and animals are dying out. We are using up the Earth’s supply of fossil fuels, such as oil and coal. What can we do? Everything that you do, no matter how small has an effect on the world around you. Children can help to make the world a better place. The future of the Earth is in your hands. Be Green and Keep it Clean!!!
