Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s Environment.This year the day is celebrated under the theme ‘Mobilize the Earth’; On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day 2012 and help Mobilize the Earth. People of all nationalities and backgrounds will voice their appreciation for the planet and demand its protection. This year, as part of planned activities to observe the day, the Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) has planned a Dirty Sock Contest for Thursday, April 19, 2012, at the Bayfront, Roseau.Certified taxi operators will be randomly selected to participate in the said event. Participants will be given a clean, new white sock to place over their vehicle’s emission pipe. The vehicles will then be switched on and left to idle for 30 seconds. By taking the sock off of the emission pipe and turning it inside out, participants will be able to see what their automobile emits into the air and its effects on air quality.The DDA is hopeful that the knowledge obtained from this activity will stimulate awareness among the general public on how the environment is affected on a daily basis by our actions and how we can reduce our carbon footprint and help clean up our world. The DDA encourages all to incorporate the following sustainable practices in their daily activities;• “Reduce. Reuse. Recycle”• Buy locally• Turn off Electronics when not in useLighting – Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) have that cool curly shape and save more than 2/3rds of the energy of a regular incandescent.
