    I heard a beautiful quote yesterday "when you are altruistic, (&) make choices for the greater good of others, it will come around (it) benefits me as well, it benefits us all”.

    Thank you all for your actions in this combined effort to create a cleaner environment.    
    There was a great article in NY Times on the use of "Bio-degradable" products.   Do check it out when you get a chance.
