Earth Day is a day when many people are looking for new ways to celebrate and start new green habits to keep all year long.

An F-M area group called Valley Earth Resource is trying to help people learn how they can make a change by going green. They spread information like by changing to a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) can last up to 13 times longer than a regular bulb.
