Earth Day

| Burlington County Library

Celebrated each year on April 22, Earth Day shines a spotlight on our environment and what we can do to protect it to safeguard our future and that of future generations. This year’s theme is Invest in Our Planet. What will you do to make a difference? We think one of the easiest ways to help our planet all year long is by recycling! The United States Environmental Protection Agency shows there’s more to recycle than just bottles, cans and paper, too! And, not only does recycling help our planet, it saves money, so don’t forget to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle for a cleaner, greener tomorrow.
