Dr. Seuss is back in theaters and this time he’s saving the environment with the help of a special character who has a talent for speaking for trees, the Lorax.
Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is an animated movie about a boy who goes in search of a Truffula tree in hopes of winning a girl’s heart. In order to do this he meets the Lorax and learns about saving the environment.
In honor of the movie we have come up with some ideas on how you can volunteer to help sustain the environment in our community.
- Clean up trash at a local park, trail or lake
- Plant a garden or tree in a place that many people can enjoy
- Make bird feeders for a local park
- Start a recycling program at your school or workplace
- Encourage people to use reusable bags instead of plastic ones when they go shopping
- Create a community garden
- Encourage people to carpool or ride their bikes more
- Adopt a highway with several of your friends or with your company
- Set up a seed/plant exchange with your neighbors
- Start a compost pile and encourage your neighbors to use it
Now go out and help make the Round Rock area a better place!
