Earth Day, celebrated every year on April 22, is a reminder that everyone can contribute to a better planet! Here at the Embassy of Luxembourg in Washington DC we strive to make every day Earth Day! At the initiative of Ms. Monika Langer, wife of the Ambassador of Luxembourg, the Sustainable Residences in Washington DC (SRW-DC) network, which comprises of the spouses and partners of the EU Member States Ambassadors, promotes sustainability and green practices within the diplomatic residences. The green projects at the Luxembourg Residence, for example, include use of renewable, sustainable and clean energy; recycling of all glass and plastic; cultivation of herbs, tomatoes and vegetables; composting grass, foliage and raw, vegan leftovers as well as mulching with own compost; use of natural cleaning products; and water management. These simple yet effective steps provide for a green, environmentally friendly and sustainable living.
