Today is Earth Day.
The first Earth Day was in 1970~ I find this to be amazing! Mostly, because I remember 1970... and I don't remember being overly concerned about the environment. We have come a long way from the days of AquaNet aerosol hair spray, cheap leaded gas, and the earth shoe.
I recently have started carrying my own reusable shopping bags. Those plastic grocery bags seem to multiply in my kitchen... I imagine they grow like kudzu in the landfills. This is one small thing that can make a difference.
This is a concept that has not quite arrived in the aisles of the Piggley Wiggley. When they ask paper or plastic... I pull out my bags. They aren't quite sure what to think of me.
Have y'all checked out Simply Green? It is a blog that always has great eco-friendly tips. I am always learning something new. Kat has posted the funniest cartoon! I drive a bug, Bill drives diesel... that is soooo US.
Act Locally~ Think Globally.
