    I am so happy that we are discovering and celebrating the ways that we can make the Earth healthier.  Environmental health and human health are interlinked so when we are more environmentally responsible we make people healthier.  Finding ways to make our economy pollution free with minimal disruption is one of the most important health challenges of this century.
