DETROIT, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FlowerDeliveryExpress.com a leading online flower delivery company, says that although Earth Day isn't until Monday, April 22nd it is not too early to think about how you can make a contribution to reducing the pollution that is destroying the planet.  Toxic chemicals and gases along with tons of trash are a threat to every living thing on the planet.  You can make a difference in a simple way like helping to clean up a roadway.

The average person throws away 4.5 pounds of trash a day.  This is roughly equal to 1,460 pounds of trash thrown away per person per year.  Americans throw out over 195 million tons of trash annually.  Unfortunately many people throw out their trash along the side of the highway.  A lot of this trash is related to fast food packaging material.

For the past eight years FlowerDeliveryExpress.com staff have volunteered to pick-up trash three times a year along M-5 as part of the Adopt-A-Highway program in the State of Michigan.  FlowerDeliveryExpress.com, CEO, Wesley Berry says, "It is going to be up to each individual to take responsibility for helping to reverse the impact modern man is having on the environment.  It is not unusual for people driving down the road when they see us doing our trash pick-up to honk their horn and give us a thumbs-up sign."

Road clean-up is one of the annual activities many communities participate in on Earth Day.  Check with your local community affairs department to find out if such an activity is scheduled for your area.
