Thursday marks national “Earth Day” and my hometown Oakland, California are making sure they have thier full participation. I was curious as to what was going on in my own communities back home so I searched the internet and came across….”Love Yo Mama” 2nd anual Earth Day event put on by ACORN and Tassaforanga recreation center of East Oakland. The event will take place that weekend with live entertaintment like dummers, dancers, visuals, scraper bikes, and information on enviornmental issues.
I think this is great that Oakland has been trying to clean up the streets not just physically but figuratively. I come home each summer to find more healthier and enviornmental savvy places. Living out in Virginia these fools don’t even recycle. I grew up on putting the plasic bottles in the grey bin and the composte in the green bin so coming out here was a drastic change for me.
I do appreciate how the campus I live on is contributing to “Earth Day” this week with their theme “GO GREEN” as well as the many commercials on the tv about our planet. I guess all I ask is that you throw your trash and think twice about wanting to save our planet 🙂
