Earth Day 2014

We just want to take a moment to thank you for all of the work you do to make a difference. Whether you are focused on Green Cleaning or sustainability, your efforts are important.

One of my favorite quotes is from Margaret Mead:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

As I think about the significance of Earth Day, and the way it raises awareness and attention to the impacts we have on our environment, I found several additional quotations that I think you may appreciate.

Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, Nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of Nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.
— Thomas Alva Edison

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
— William Shakespeare

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
— John Muir

The proper use of science is not to conquer nature but to live in it.
— Barry Commoner

And one I know you all have heard, but still bears repeating:

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.
— Native American Proverb

We hope you have a wonderful day, and take the time to think about why Earth Day was initiated and how we all can continue to create positive impacts on our environment.

Thank you for all that you do!
