Newland Communities Celebrate Earth Day 2019

Earth Day is an important day for people to take the time to consider all of the effects they may have on the environment and how to take steps to remedy their impact.  Newland focuses on being healthy, staying connected, and remaining resilient—it’s what inspires us to create sustainable communities like no other. Caring is part of who we are. It’s in our DNA, and under our OneNewland umbrella, we contribute to the well-being of our communities so we all can live happier and healthier lives that are more in tune with nature.

Below is a spotlight on some Newland communities and how they are celebrating Earth Day 2019!
