Earth Day is being celebrated everyday in your New Ninth District, as we work to clean up - and green up - our community! From our targeted community clean-up initiative to opening up new parks and community gardens, we are on a mission to transform our neighborhoods starting with improving our environment. This weekend we held four community clean-ups across the district to celebrate Earth Day, with dozens of community volunteers and collected tons of trash and bulky items. As we take a moment today to think about preserving our environment, visit sites like www.epa.gov/earthday/tips for tips on how to live "greener." I'd also love to hear from you - what are your ideas for environmental change in our community? What activities or policies would you like to see our office take on, and as always, let us know if you want to be a volunteer for our next "Clean and Green" event!
Here's to making our community, cleaner, greener and safer!
