Earth Day is April 22; how are we saving our planet?

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

We are back out on the street, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

Considering that Earth Day is coming up April 22, while we were at the Big Red Bus mobile blood donation spot at Buckwalter Plaza, we asked: What is something you do regularly to help save the planet?

Karen Wyman, Beaufort: “Recycle everything: cardboard, plastics, cans. And we don’t use paper towels.”











Candace Camp, Bluffton: “I moved and planted trees this past year.”











Dan Jacobs, Bluffton: “Giving blood to save the people.”











Chris Herrin, Bluffton: “Recycle, reuse, conserve energy, compost. I check the thermostats everywhere – at home and at work.”












Charlie Fjeldal, Bluffton: “Recycle, walk instead of drive when I can, use the electric car rather than the gas car.”
