On a clear day...
Fortunately for some organisms, like anaerobes, they can live without oxygen or air. We, on the other hand, start life with a slap on the back to begin breathing.
Without air or oxygen, we cease to exist. If this is true, then why is it that most of us will never take any personal action to protect our air supply?
I asked my boyfriend Shelly about this. He said that until we start choking to death (literally), then and only then will we take this matter seriously realizing that our abundant supply of air is being heavily polluted.
Air pollution not only comes from naturally occurring sources such as windblown dust, volcanic eruptions, but from factories, power plants, dry cleaners, restaurants, cars, buses, planes, trucks, and trains.
The federal clean air act outlines the foundation and offers implementation strategies to state, tribal and local agencies for cleaning up the air.
However, without your involvement and commitment, we are certain to be defeated in our battle to clean the air.
This section is dedicated to individuals and organizations that are dedicated to protecting the air we breathe. Join us by recognizing these Gladiators fighting to preserve our planet resources.
If you know someone or group that works relentless to clean the air, send your stories to share with others.

The Recycle bin...
Recycle your cans, bottles, and motor oil. Repair by refurbishing. Recycle by giving it away. You know that old adage--your trash is definitely another person's treasure--that's why garage sales are so popular.
And if you're not into garage sales, donate your old stuff to non-profit organizations which I'm sure you're doing already, but do more of it.
I even need help in changing my behavior--instead of trashing it, I need to make the call. Donate unwanted supplies to local schools or nonprofit organizations.
