Local Company Takes Part in Earth Day
In honor of Earth Day, companies in Springfield are trying to clean up our city. Employees from Contech Engineering Solutions hit the streets Monday to pick up trash. However, they decided to take it one step further by recycling any trash they could. Employees say it feels good to pitch in and help the community.
" We weant to give back to the community and we set up multiple Earth Day projects through the United States. Myself and the production planner set this up for Springfield because we've been here for so long we thought it was right to give back a little," said Domenic Lopez with Contech Engineering Solutions. Monday marked the 43rd Earth Day. More than one billion people in 192 countries were expected to participate in Earth Day activities.
