So many things to like about this effort. Eliminating Tucson's contribution to plastic straw waste, educating restaurant guests as to why straws are a problem, lovely table setting & recreating potential waste (wine corks) into attractive & inexpensive sign holders! Way 2 go!

Don't you love what the rain does for our air quality? We are seeing green in more ways than one!!! Let's try to keep it that way by avoiding engine idling (park & go inside!) and driving less (combine trips & share the ride). Saves money & the air. Healthy Air Is In Our Hands!

Be careful out there! Children & families walking or biking to school are reducing traffic congestion & air pollution for us all & starting life-long healthy habits of active transportation. Give them a break & slow down. Healthy Air Is In Our Hands!

On remember that all creatures need clean air and clean water. Check out my clowder of kitties who all volunteered to become part of my life, by being at the right place at just the right time. And I am happy they did!

Love the Loop! And it is a great way to get out of your car, exercise, and enjoy the incredible natural and human-created beauty along the pathway. Healthy Air Is In Our Hands and using the Loop instead of driving will help keep the air healthy to breathe.

Great time to get your neighbors together & come up with a plan to slow the stormwater down & let it soak into the ground. Planting trees could reduce flooding; increase property values; help the air; beautify, shade & green up your street. More info@ TC&B
