Did It Change Things In Your Home Yet?

Did you know that Earth Day turned 40 this year in April? Earth Day is still altering our perspective about the world in which we live in this new era. Often as with us mere mortals, it's a time of reflection and re-evaluaion. In 1969, two momentous events changed our view of the earth dramatically: man set foot on the moon for the first time and Earth Day was formed. Think about that for a minute.

As baby boomers, we remember that before Earth Day became a global celebration, it began as a grassroots demonstration in Wisconsin. Frustrated by the government's lack of concern for the environment, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson came up with the idea of a grassroots college demonstration called Earth Day to bring the environmental issue to the White House's attention. And the rest is history.

Much to Nelson's and the government's surprise, over 20 million Americans came together on April 22nd, 1970, the first Earth Day, to voice their unanimous concern for the environment. Nelson thought that the fact it organized itself was very remarkable. He also admitted he had little resources to organize such an enormous gathering. In reality Earth Day happened as a result of the determination of millions of eco-conscious Americans. Is there still that obvious need for us to be concerned about what our part is as a people here on this earth? Most Americans would agree.

Before 1970, the environment was considered a pretty low priority item for the government and the public. While ecology conservation was discussed, and accepted, virtually no one paid attention to industrial pollution. After Earth Day, public opinion polls changed dramatically, with 25% of the public declaring protecting the environment is an important goal, a 2500% increase from previous years. The environmental issue also finally made it to the White House's table. Soon after the first Earth Day, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, whose mission is to protect human health and the environment, was formed.

Now, fast forward 40 years, were you aware that Earth Day has become the largest secular world holiday?

Earth Days global network includes more than 500 million people from 4,500 organizations in 180 countries actively involved in bringing forth change. That is unbelievable really.

The EPA has also grown leaps and bounds, and is now taking on a wide range of environmental issues, including clean air and global climate change, clean and safe water, land preservation and restoration, healthy communities and ecosystems, and compliance and environmental stewardship. Since 1970, the EPA has passed the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species acts, and created many programs and partnerships such as the WaterSense program.

Most of todays major manufactures of water products, appliances and home products partner with the EPAs WaterSense program, and we think that makes every day an Earth Day. Here at Atlas Plumbing, we are dedicated to sustainable practices, green technologies, and helping homeowners use water more wisely.

The question you may be asking is how can YOU make a difference?

To quote Ghandi, 'You must be the change you see in the world.' Youd be surprised to know how changing the small habits you do every day (like fixing a simple leak or turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth) can make a big impact on the earth over time. Atlas Plumbing has lots of tips and advice for everyday environmentalism. We invite you to learn more about how you can make every day Earth day for you and your family in your home by calling us.

Take a few minutes to reflect about what Earth Day may means. It is only through the determination of ordinary citizens like you who care about the entire world community at large that determines the legacy we leave for future generations. Youre already taking a first step by learning about environmental issues. You can also pass on the knowledge to your family, friends, and community and get them involved (thats how 20 million people came together on the first Earth Day!) Start right now. Call us today for a free evaluation of your home. If you are considering some renovations that include plumbing changes, why not save the environment at the same time? 972-243-8051

Atlas Plumbing replaced a sewer line which had corroded under the house and broken. Using a camera, the they showed us it was corroded, broken and had roots in it. We got 3 bids, with Atlas having provided us with a most satisfactory explanation.
