Earth Day!

Well happy Earth Day everyone!

Some people say how weird this day is and don't really acknowledge it. And I say to them, well why the heck not?

We are on Earth. We live here. If it wasn't for Earth, where would we be. Every one of us gets a birthday so why not celebrate the Earth too?

Earth Day is actually 40 years old today. It all started with a US Senator. So thank you US Senator for making a day when we all think about this great place we live and what we can do to help it stay so beautiful and wonderful. 

That's what Earth day is. To think about those environmental issues that go on around us all day, everyday. It is a day when we can say, what can I do to help make the Earth better?

I recycle. You should recycle. There isn't a good reason not to. Just put a bin next to your garbage and its very simple. It saves the planet. 

If you can, walk instead of drive. Unfortunately, I am far away from any type of store or socialization so I am forced to get in the car to get places. But if you are close to the post office, walk there a couple days a week instead of releasing the gas into the air.

Clotheslines are a good investment too. I'm a country girl and grew up with the clothesline during the warmer months. Turns out its good for the electric bill and the carbon footprint.

Something cute I found was "green" dates. Here are a few they suggested.

  • Go to the market
  • Pick up garbage, especially something that can be recycled 
  • Go canoeing
  • Take a romantic stroll under the stars
For more ideas it's all right here!

So please do at least one "green" activity today to help preserve this planet we call home.
