You have probably noticed by now that I’m a big Earth lover. Call me a Tree Hugger, an Earth Muffin, a Granola, or whatever. I don’t care. (I personally like Hippybilly or Reformed Red-neck, since I’m a country girl with a fondness for environmental issues.)
Here are some things you might consider doing on this day of days:
2. Take your family somewhere they can learn about the Earth. The new Disney Oceans is playing right now. Tour your local recycling center. Many cities have educational centers like Flagstaff’s Willow Bend Environmental Education Center, or go to any kind of science center (our town is home to the famous Lowell Observatory). Teach your children the importance of our planet health.
3. Pick up trash.
4. Order a recycling can. (It’s a big pet peeve of mine when I drive by a trash can full of cardboard. Unnecessary waste.)
5. Plant a tree or two. Or ten.
6. Contribute to the Carbon Neutral Blogging Program, because our blogging creates carbon dioxide. And this program is free! (Push translate in the top right corner to read it in English.)
All you have to do is this:
I could go on, but I'll stop there.
Because yeah, it’s a big soap box of mine and I have a feeling many of you share my opinion.
So today, plant a tree. Give back. Or even things out at least. Your children will thank you when that tree grows up and what’s more, they’ll remember your example every time they look at it. We only have one planet and we are the guardians over it. So please do what you can to keep it healthy!
Okay, that's enough linkage for now...
Happy EARTH DAY!
