I paddle on water each day. I breathe in air, deep into my lungs each day, I surround myself with nature's beauty each day. I wish for us to be able to taste this each day far into the future.
Being a member of Clean Air Champions is important to me because I hope that through educating people on the simple ways that we can affect our environment in a positive way, we can initiate dramatic positive changes that are immediate with regards to the health and well being of not only ourselves, but also our earth.
