Alphabe~Thursday the Letter G

Gee!

I must have missed A,B,C,D,E and F.

G is for Going Green.

We are the only living creatures that create trash.

And Gee we certainly create a lot of it.

How do we solve that problem?

Well Virginia Beach, VA came up with a solution for their growing pile of trash. They created a park out of it. They called it Mount Trashmore Park.
Here is a link to some interesting facts about Mount Trashmore Park :
