‘Going Green’ means to live life, as an individual as well as a community, in a way that is friendly to the natural environment and is sustainable for the earth, and Earth Day is the annual day of awareness that celebrates the green lifestyle.
Earth Day spurs us to see our environment — and one another — in a new way, to turn the invisible into the visible, to transform the disposable into the invaluable. Earth Day also reminds us that we’re part of an interconnected ecosystem that’s sensitive to human impact and that we’re part of an interconnected regional economy that’s sensitive to environmental forces. Join us in conversation as we explore how the disability community can help lessen our impact as we engage in discussion around DME recycling, sustainable gardening and health, medicine disposal, proper med disposal, accessible outdoor opportunities and more. This #EarthDay, we’re uplifting + centering our disability communities in the fight for #EnvironmentalJustice!
