April is Earth Month and I wanted to share with you some of the most powerful quotes I have been collecting over the years. They inspire me to think about how I should treat our planet and how I can become more involved in Environmental Stewardship. As a business owner, these quotes motivate me to think about our carbon footprint and how we can soften it.

Let's celebrate our planet, let's all do our part to protect this fragile place we all call home. Won't you share with us your favorite quotes? Add a comment to the bottom of this blog. Thank you for reading!
