I’m finding it hard to believe but we’re nearly a week into September. A new month means new ecologically important dates, so let’s see what 2009 has to offer. Remember that we can all celebrate these days by doing something to help reduce our negative impact on the earth. Not sure how? You can leave your car at home on September 22. You could buy eco-friendly, local, organic and/or fair-trade foods and merchandise on September 28. Pick up litter around your neighbourhood, school, church or even your work on September 19 and 20.

September 16 – International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer
Sept. 19 & 20 – Clean Up the World Weekend
