GOING GREEN? SO, WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
One of my favorite quotes is from Senator Gaylord Nelson, the founder of Earth Day, who said, “The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.”
Our actions, more than our words, indicate whether we care about the condition of this planet when handed over to those future generations.
I believe that most people are caring and unselfish, and will do the right thing if given the necessary information. I still have hope for the goodness of the human race.
Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful has a mission and goal to provide environmental education and information to our community so everyone can make informed choices about their personal behaviors.
Here are a few ways that YOU can connect with the information you need:
Our e-Newsletters are an excellent way to receive up-to- date, local information on events, programs, and upcoming volunteer opportunities. Newsletters are brief with added links for additional information. Email addresses are protected, never sold or given away, and are only used for KALB business.
KALB’s Facebook page – Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful – is a great source of quick, useful information. Our posts provide information in easy-to-swallow bites — and it is ALWAYS local and pertinent.
KALB also has a website dedicated to our entire organization, which includes information on our education programs, litter abatement activities, our Recycling Center, and Beautification Board. Here you can find details about our programs, find a list of what, where, and how to recycle, and seek out the many volunteer and sponsorship opportunities available through KALB.
We rely on Planet Earth to provide a great deal to us — food, water, fresh air, and more. Future generations are relying on us, people they’ve never met, to handle their planet with care and concern. Connect with KALB and we’ll help you do just that. (256) 233-8728
