What You Can Do Earth Day

Soldiers;Apr2007, Vol. 62 Issue 4, p49
The article presents guidelines to U.S. soldiers on how they can help protect the environment and the Earth, in view of the observance of Earth Day on April 22. It suggests to recycle paper, cans and plastic bottles since money made from recycling often goes to morale, welfare and recreation programs on post. It urges to order just enough hazardous materials to get the job done and meet immediate needs since getting rid of hazardous wastes costs 10 times more than the materials initially cost.
