Earth Day was established 45 years ago as a way to bring awareness and inspire action to protect our air, land and water. The first Earth Day, ”showed the political and opinion leadership of the country that the people cared, that they were ready for political action, that the politicians had better get ready, too.” Today, Earth Day helps bring awareness to environmental issues and rekindles interest with events and activities.
Since moving to our new office in February of 2014, EDR has participated in the Adopt-a-Street program, by periodically picking up litter on the road where we are headquartered, in, Shelton, Connecticut. On this year’s Earth Day, April 22, 2015, a group of EDR employees celebrated Earth Day by cleaning up our road. EDR chose to participate locally through Shelton’s Adopt a Street program.
