Earth Day is coming on Friday, April 22nd, and there are lots of simple, even fun, ways that you can help make a difference and celebrate.

Lots of volunteer organizations and the Adopt-A-Highway sponsors haven't been able to get out in groups as they normally would because of social distancing guidelines brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years.

That's why families cleaning up individually have been and will continue to be such a big help.

Volunteers had been hoping that with less people out and about over the past 2 years due to COVID-19 would also mean less trash and littering going on, but that isn't necessarily true.

And, it's actually very easy to help.

Pick a local stretch of waterway, or a roadway, a beach or even a local boat landing and get the family together and go out and help. Bring trash bags and rubber gloves too.

It's a great way for the family to do a project together, a great way to teach the kids some character building, enjoying some time outdoors together, and it's just an overall good thing to do.

You can even have some fun with it. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy some down time together on a park bench, picnic table or even along a local dock while taking a break from your volunteer efforts.

If every single person spent 5 minutes picking up trash on Earth Day, there would be no more trash. Think about that. It's synonomous with "one person CAN impact the world."

Let's help build a better Beaufort, together, on Earth Day and every day.
