Earth Day 2009

I guess it all goes back to having the privilege of being a student in Mrs. June Boyd's 3rd grade class. She read Laura Ingalls Wilder, taught poetry and introduced the idea of saving the planet. We recycled, made our own butter and learned what a compost pile was. Ever since, I have had this feeling of personal responsibility to be in awe of our planet and do my part in protecting it.

It's awesome to see that more and more people becoming aware of environmental problems. It's even better that more of us than ever are taking action to combat the problems we have created.

Wednesday, April 22nd is Earth Day. Most of us are making small efforts to make a difference. We ride our bikes, BYOB (bring your on bags) to the grocery, unplug our energy sucking appliances and electronics, use cloth napkins at home, etc...

Take some time to read 50 Green tips for Earth Day at divinecaroline.com and add a few to your daily repertoire.

Also, if you have plans to see Disney's new movie, Earth, Disney will plant a tree for every ticket purchased during opening week.

Have a Happy Earth Day! Go outside!
