Mayor Domenic J. Sarno today issued a proclamation to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.  Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, it now includes events coordinated and recognized around the globe.  

Mayor Sarno stated, “Happy Earth Day!  Little things mean a lot.  Whether young or wise in years of wisdom, we all need to take pride and do our part to keep all our areas clean.  This simple effort starts with one and makes for a cleaner, healthier and safer Springfield, state, country and world.  It’s in our hands – ‘pick-up’ and be an everyday proud leader.”

As part of the Earth Day message, ener-G-save (an organization founded and supported by Harold Grinspoon) working with Mass Save is offering a virtual energy audit to qualified people who sign up by April 30.  A contractor will do a virtual assessment using technology of the homeowner, and when the time is right, the insulation needed will be 100% covered by the utility companies.  To support this endeavor, ener-G-save is issuing an EcoChallenge – an online opportunity for people to sign on to a team and pledge to take actions when it is possible. For more information, please visit earthday.ecochallenge.org/ and sign on to the team Cooler Communities, a collaborative effort organized by ener-G-save for folks in the Pioneer Valley.
