Every year, Earth Day comes along and serves as a reminder that we need to take care of this beautiful planet we live on. Then Earth Day passes, and most of us continue to drive the gas-guzzling cars or forget to recycle without really giving it another thought (myself included). Last year, one of our Digital Media Associates caught my eye because he was riding his bike a whopping 27 miles per day to work and back. Well, Dean’s back at it again. While he moved just a little closer to the office, he’s still putting in a ton of mileage. Let’s see where’s he at now!
