Earth Day became officially recognized in the United States in 1970 and was celebrated by more than 20 million Americans. This was a time in our history when the environment really wasn’t part of daily conversation! A new level of awareness, changes in America’s use of toxic chemicals, reduction in pollution and a national focus on sustainability are indicators that we are making progress.
Our own focus on sustainability became a public one when we were awarded GS-42 certification for our Customized Cleaning for Health program by the U.S. Green Seal organization in 2009. http://greenseal.org
Earth Day Network reports that 1 billion people in 192 countries celebrate along with us, so, from all of us here at Customized, Happy Earth Day, 2013!
