A Message from Jane
One of my local environmental heroes, David Shelley, education director at the Congaree National Park, shares this quote on the bottom of all of his emails:
“No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it.” ~ Wendell Berry
What a great reminder it is that we can never hope to solve global problems unless we are each making good decisions daily here in our little corner of the world.
David recently led the charge for the fourth year of recycling at Columbia’s Greek Festival. This year, 5,460 lbs. of cardboard, plastic bottles and aluminum cans were diverted from the landfill during the four-day festival. Thanks to volunteers from the City of Columbia, Sonoco Recycling, Keep the Midlands Beautiful, Columbia College, USC, Wells Fargo and the Greek Orthodox Church for making this happen!
