We need many volunteer
Only one Earth , we should cherish their homes !
Also thanks to those volunteers !
I love reading about community events like this. Earth Day efforts would be a great topic to cover in an article. At my holistic health website I have a section for environment but also social / global health. These events are not only important for our home here on earth but also for our holistic health and well-being.
This earth day thing is great, I hope my country would seriously consider to make such a big event for mother earth!
A Message from the President
I believe that Cook County should be a world-class model of sustainability. We are working not only to boost sustainability practices throughout County government, but also to join forces with local governments, nonprofits and business, to accomplish more than we could separately in making each of Cook County’s communities sustainable. To further this work, I appointed Deborah Stone as the County’s first Chief Sustainability Officer, and as Director of the Department of Environmental Control. I also recognize that Cook County needs to share ideas and collaborate with a diverse group of community leaders and sustainability experts. In March 2012, I appointed the Cook County Sustainability Advisory Council to help lift our vision higher and give us access to best practices. You can meet the Council members and read more about their mission in the “Advisory Council” section of this website. Toni Preckwinkle,Cook County Board President
