What We Do
Published by Fulton Books, Edward Jones’s book invites the reader to unlearn the last ninety years of bad habits with respect to earth’s nature resources, trash and post-packaging and learn about alternatives to creating liquid toxic poison that goes into landfills, how is it created, how is it made, what is it doing to our fresh water streams, rivers, oceans, countries, thusly the world.
Now imagine not being able to do anything about it because there are no simple systems in place to allow people to dispose liquids properly, and stop killing ourselves, our air, water and seas. or because humans are too lazy to stop for a minute and think about what is that we are throwing away, our world.
This explains the necessity for creating such products as his new patented product, the Water Reclamation Canister.
Although we all live on this earth, it is easy to take the planet for granted. On April 22nd we celebrated Earth Day for the 53rd time. The occasion was marked with events and activities all over the world aimed at improving the conditions of the planet.
Earth Day began in 1970 as a response to damage from an oil spill in 1969 that leaked millions of gallons of oil off the coast of Santa Barbara. Seeing the aftermath of this disaster, U.S. senator Gaylord Nelson founded the first Earth Day.
Earth Day sparked the creation of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) later in that year. Other legislation was spurred on by Earth Day including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Education Act.
While the movement of Earth Day began in the U.S., it became globally recognized by 1990. In 2023, about 2 million people took part in Earth Day events.
