Your Allergy Dude has been doing his bit for the environment. Though I think I was a born recycler, doing Boy Scouts and the Leave No Trace Program has heightened my awareness of being good to our environment. Yesterday, I set up green bins for recycling plastic bottles and aluminum cans at my offices. This is part of the iRecycle program. I encourage all businesses and homes to do the same. In Illinois, if you did not separate your recycleable items from general garbage, you can be fined. I hear the same about California and Pennsylvania also. So what's my educational message today? Take care of the Earth, because it takes good care of you. On the right, today I spoke at the Upstate Forever's Spartanburg meeting at Hub-Bub Showroom for "The Air We Breath" Program as part of "The Impacts of Air Quality Part 3:AIR is Everywhere." I focused on the relationship between asthma and ozone. Watch those high counts during the summer time.
