happy trees

happy trees, happy bike

{spotted on campus, they made me smile as I rode by}

It’s Earth Day today so take a moment to breathe in some fresh air, to notice of the nature around you, and to consider how you can help sustain the ecology of our planet. Perhaps it’s just as simple as trading some car trips for bike rides or creatively reusing some more household items to reduce the amount of waste going into our landfills. Or talking to your kids about why nature is important and what we can do to protect it. Maybe it’s even just that added effort to turn off unneccessary lights in your home, to watch a bit less TV each week, to use less plastic when possible, or to take shorter showers. Whatever you do, do something.

For more ideas, check out the Billion Acts of Green on the Earth Day page, showing the myriad of ways in which people are pledging to save the planet and live more ecologically friendly.

Happy Earth Day!

    Your post just made me realize that I had absent-mindedly left a light on in the kitchen. Off to turn it off. Happy (belated) Earth Day!
