🌿Vertical Farming Weekly - April 22nd, 2022

Hello earthlings,

Welcome to this week's issue of Vertical Farming Weekly!

We hope you're having not only a wonderful Friday, but a happy Earth Day as well! Use today as an excuse to get out there and enjoy your surroundings. While you're out on your walk, hike, bike ride, etc, take a trash bag with you. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, at least 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year, Killing an estimated minimum of one million animals from land to sea. Put you gloves on and help keep litter and plastic waste away from land animals, and out of our waterways.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday, and the rest of this issue of Vertical Farming Weekly.

Leave your community better than you found it.
