The Lorax Project 2021

2021 marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. Seuss’s iconic classic of environmentalism: The Lorax, originally published in 1971. The Lorax teaches readers that taking care of the environment is a responsibility we all share because “unless we care a whole awful lot, it’s not going to get better, it’s not.”  And, as new generations begin to learn more and more about environmental protection, this message becomes even more relevant today.

Sharing The Lorax is an excellent way to begin the conversation about protecting and caring for the environment in which we live, because big or small, anyone can help to make a difference.
