– “‘The Earth deserves a whole month’: Olympia rally calls for local environmental action”
“When it comes to saving the planet, one day is not enough.
About 75 people attended a rally Saturday [April 1] at the Capitol Campus to kick off Earth Month in Thurston County.
The campaign started last year when Olympia resident Dave Sederberg helped hang dozens of Earth flags throughout downtown Olympia. The flags have returned and can be seen along Capitol Way.”
“The idea has been bolstered by Gov. Jay Inslee, who issued a proclamation that April 2017 would be known as Earth Month to ‘unite those working in the interest of the planet, inspire participation, and build intergenerational action through local activism and global environmental consciousness,'” by Andy Hobbs, The Olympian.
