This week has been full of celebration and advocacy for our planet’s future! I was grateful to start my Earth Day off in celebration with Cranbury Elementary scholars, Girl Scouts, and their families. There were seed packets for home gardens to give away, birdhouses to paint for our feathered friends, and we learned about the importance of knowing what can be recycled and what can not so we can live more sustainably in our daily lives. They put together a great public service and this education will benefit us all. There are great things going on in environmental education at Cranbury - thanks Cubs for sharing what you are working on with me!
I also had so much fun at the 2nd Annual Earth Day on Norwalk Green with our community, including our great environmental advocates and nonprofits, and other folks making a difference in helping to create a greener Norwalk. I spoke about how hearing from you helps us create better laws for our planet and so we know directly from you what to advocate for, and how every little thing we do adds up to big impacts together. I was also happy to make an announcement about the new composting location in our District in Cranbury Park - please check it out. I enjoyed our constituent conversations there too!
