Stay hydrated and productive during these hot summer days by carrying your own reusable water bottle instead of buying one. Over 1500 bottles of water are consumed in the US every second, and 90% of these go into landfills. Parkies Marianne Anderson in the Bronx and Jeff Sigadel in Brooklyn have already pledged to bring a reusable water bottle to work.
QUOTATION FOR THE DAY
“Idleness is to the human mind like rust to iron.”
