This Day In 1492…

Columbus Day - Waste and Recycling Workers Week

Happy Columbus Day!

In fourteen hundred ninety-two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue

He kept all of his nautical trash in a can
So you could someday thank your garbage man

Well…that might not be exactly how the real poem went but we like to think it was something like that.

Wherever you are today, may you celebrate discovery and especially the great discovery that Christopher Columbus made during his first voyage to the Americas in 1492. Keep dreaming, creating, and discovering.

Don’t forget to show your appreciation for the men and women who keep our environment safe and clean. Here are some ways to celebrate year round!
