April is the month to focus on making the world a better place.  Don't forget to do your part by celebrating Earth Day on April 22nd.  Earth Day aims to inspire awareness of and appreciation for the earth's environment.   Arbor Day, a special day set aside dedicated to tree planting and increasing awareness of the importance of trees, is on April 26th.  April is also recognized as Keep America Beautiful Month.  Keep America  Beautiful, the nation's leading nonprofit, has done research to prove that a community that is environmentally happy is also economically happy.  Businesses are more likely to move to a community that looks and feels clean, and consumers are more likely to approach businesses with such surroundings.
