Today is Earth Day, which since 1970 has marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement. The late Gaylord Nelson, a Wisconsin environmentalist who served as a U.S. Senator and Governor of our state was the founder of this day. Because of his initiative, today more than one billion people around the world are utilizing and promoting ways to honor and preserve the planet that we all share. Today is a day of action.
We are proud to tell you that over the past few years, the Grand Avenue Club community has implemented a variety of practices that are designed to respectfully preserve the Earth's resources while also sustaining our large and diverse community. We rely on home-made juices, a salad bar, and utilize seasonal produce from local vendors throughout the year. We are grateful to the many gardeners who routinely share their surpluses with us. We offer Supper Kits to members to purchase and take home so that they will enjoy good meals over weekends. We use our coffee grounds to fertilize our plants. We encourage our friends to bring us their upscale clothing, which we clean and sell at very reasonable prices in our beautiful boutique.
We wish you all a wonderful Earth Day 2021 and urge you to think about how you too can preserve and sustain the utility and beauty of our planet via sound practices and respect.
