Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth. The flowers are back in bloom, the animals come out of hibernation, and the air just seems crisper and cleaner. It’s a beautiful time of year, which leaves no surprise why some of the major holidays and campaigns celebrating earth and this country are in April. In addition to Earth Day, April is also National Keep America Beautiful Month.
At Action Cooling & Heating of Fort Meyers, Florida, keeping America beautiful is an important initiative that they believe in. With their community involvement and dedication to service, Action Cooling & Heating of Fort Meyers shares their own ways on how they believe we can all work to keep America beautiful.
One way to pitch in is to join a community cleanup program. One great organization is the Great American Cleanup. This organization is the largest community-based group in the country, spread across roughly 20,000 communities in the country. From spring through Fall, the Great American Cleanup is actively creating and participating in initiatives that help to clean up our communities. There local and active chapters available in Southwest Florida.
Keeping America Beautiful is also about respecting the wildlife and plant species that can be found in each region of the country. Every region has a plant that it’s known for. In fact, majority of the states in America have state birds, state trees, and state flowers. Vegetation and agriculture are important parts of this country. When considering which plants to grow in your yard, choose plants that are native to your area. Choosing native vegetation requires less maintenance and is less harmful to your area. You don’t want to introduce plants that can harm other species that thrive in your climate.
Another tip from Action Cooling & Heating in Fort Meyers is to be mindful of recycling and throwing out your trash. It’s fun to pretend you’re basketball and shoot your garbage into the trashcan, but be sure it actually makes it into the bin. Don’t leave trash lying around. The same goes for recycling. Know what you can and cannot recycle, and make every effort to sort it out accordingly. On large HVAC jobs, the technicians of Action Cooling & Heating take responsible efforts to dispose of all HVAC repair waste sustainably.
Keeping America beautiful is an important initiative that everyone should get behind. We all have to do our part to keep this country looking as great as it deserves.
