Earth's helpers

The Earth is the place we live, but not all people take care of it. I was thinking of this one day and decided that kids could help fix this problem and not just adults.

So I created an organization to help the Earth. We are called the Lake Erie Green Team. Our goal is to do our part to keep the Earth clean.

Even though my original thought was to have kids make a difference, any adults who have contacted me asking to join have been accepted. They are able to contact me on my website:

The website lists things you can do to help the Earth, our mission statement, the members of our team, our events and a page to contact me. My goal is to help the animals, plants and even the people in our environment. I hope more people will start to realize how important it is to keep our planet clean, because the better we take care of Earth the more we will prevent global warming.

It doesn't take much to make a difference, even just planting another tree will help. Cars' engines are fueled by gasoline and that pollutes the air, so another fun earth-helping activity is riding your bike to places or walking. So go on out and keep our Earth clean.
