In honor of Earth Day, I released a “Green Guide” on Friday, April 22nd for the residents of Massachusetts’ 10th Congressional District.
The theme of this year’s Earth Day is A Billion Acts of Green, and I can think of no better way to embrace that spirit than by committing to incorporate small acts of green on a daily basis. The changes necessary to do our part do not need to be great or cumbersome, and I hope my Green Guide provides usable information on opportunities to go green at home, in the office or in our community.
Environmental conservation is critical to our district where tourism is a key local industry, but it is also imperative to the country as a whole. If we want to lower our fuel costs and end our country’s dependence on foreign oil, then we need to start employing clean energy technologies.
Whether by embracing energy alternatives or simply recycling, each step towards protecting our environment is a step in the right direction.
The Green Guide can be found at: http://keating.house.gov/sites/keating.house.gov/files/Keating%20Green%20Guide.pdf, and is also accessible from the homepage of my website.
We are fortunate to live in a community with a beautiful, vibrant ecosystem, and I vow to do my part to keep it that way. I hope you will join me in this endeavor.
