April 22nd is Earth Day all over the world, and at Lewis Greenscape nursery, people are thinking plants, seeds, and sustainability.
Joann Lilly is preparing a red and white Husker garden, and she's now cobbling together a water barrel.
"I'm still just about completing that, but I've got it pretty much put together and it'll hook to my garden and that way it'll water my flower beds and I can reuse the water," said Lilly.
Staff members at the nursery say that overhead watering can be a waste.
"It evaporates so much, especially on those hot summer days, you're losing a lot of evaporation when you're watering overhead, and a lot of your plants like your tomatoes, they don't like to be watered overhead. You have a disease that sets in, so it's best to water down below," said Greenscape's Teresa Wayne.
Attraction to the beauty of greenery seems to come naturally, and people are taking steps to make sure their world stays green.
Habitat for Humanity and the Habitat "ReStore" held a can toss at Canestoga Mall to promote their "Can Jam" recycling drive.
"We actually build a house with the money from the cans," said
Habitat's Tanna Skarniak.
And it's more than just cans, Habitat's ReStore recycles lots of just about any home fixture you can think of.
"Doors and brass hinges, hardware, anything," said Tanna Skarniak.
Paper Tiger shredding company's Tim Davidson sees a definite green trend.
"Everybody is, you know, thinking more about reusing things, recycling and reducing the waste that goes into our landfills," said Davidson.
