EAC Springs into Earth Day Campaign



EAC launches its week-long campaign for Earth Day 2021, beginning April 19th. Look at the bottom of the article for the release schedule and the EAC’s website link.

  What better way to appreciate the budding flowers and warm sunshine this Spring than to hear about the little things everyone can do to “Restore Our Earth!”

  Sanderson’s Environmental Awareness Club (EAC) is hosting a week-long awareness campaign from April 19 to April 23— detailing ways YOU can be conscious of your environmental footprint. 

  Junior and EAC Historian, Rory Smith explains, “For students, I think it will be beneficial because we are so young. I think we can help others change their lifestyles now, so that in 20 years, we can have made a huge difference in our environment.”

  A few counterarguments people tend to make when confronted with the importance of implementing sustainability in their day-to-day lives, are the following. One—I am only one person. How can my actions matter that much? Two—I can’t see it, so it doesn’t affect me. Three—It isn’t practical for my lifestyle. Four—The consequences won’t occur in my lifetime.

  The fact of the matter is, people either don’t know enough or don’t care enough to make changes. The EAC’s Advisor, Amanda Herlacher elucidates, “It’s like the ‘Everybody, Anybody, Somebody, Nobody’ poem: it is everybody’s responsibility to make changes that will have a positive impact because you don’t know whether everybody, somebody, or nobody will make the changes that anybody can.”


This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody,

 Anybody and Nobody.  


There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure

 that Somebody would do it.  Anybody could have done it, but 

Nobody did it.  Somebody got angry about that, because it was 

Everybody’s job.  Everybody thought Anybody could do 

it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.  


It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when 

Nobody did what Anybody could have.


  If damaging actions continue to escalate, the Earth could be reaching a point of irreversibility. An analysis from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts terrible food shortages, wildfires and a colossal die-off of coral reefs as near as 2040. Unless governments, corporations, and individual consumers make serious changes. 

  Herlacher affirms, “What we buy tells companies what we want. If we support companies that make good environmental decisions, then it will have a greater impact.”

  Additionally, the EAC has found ways for people to implement no-cost methods that can be used everyday to help not only help protect the world, but save you money!

  Beginning Monday, April 19, there will be a series of flyers and informative clips released about a specific topic each day of the week pertaining to sustainability. Here is the schedule below.

Monday, April 19: Water Conservation

Tuesday, April 20: Ways to Reduce Waste

Wednesday, April 21: Sustainable Shopping

Thursday, April 22: Saving Electricity

Friday, April 23: Reducing Plastic
