Celebrate July 4 with Red, White, Blue and Green
Honoring America’s birthday is a long-standing tradition that evokes and communicates national pride. Why not honor mother earth at the same time? Here are some tips on how to celebrate in style while keeping it green.
1.Lower carbon emissions. If traveling for the holiday, consider taking public transportation or carpooling. Look into community events near your home and avoid sitting in traffic.
2.Use eco-friendly bug repellent. Almost all July 4 activities take place outside where bugs live. Keep the mosquitoes and other pests away by using one of these natural methods:
·The temperature outside may be hot, hot, hot, so help your guests cool down by offering organic Popsicles.
4.Say no to fireworks. Fireworks contribute to air pollution, which can lead to respiratory issues like asthma. They are also full of chemicals that end up in our rivers, lakes and oceans. After the holiday, consider volunteering for a beach cleanup to pick up trash from the fireworks and preserve our natural resources.
Happy Fourth of July from all of us at OC Waste & Recycling. Please remember we will be closed on the holiday. All operations will resume July 5, 2019.
