I’ve been thinking for days about what I wanted to write about for my Earth Day post. It hasn’t been easy. I’ve watched my twitter feed, read magazines, surfed the internet, read many other blog posts, and searched my own book shelves and knowledge base to find something that was right, but I couldn’t. I was overwhelmed!
Is that how you feel when it comes to Earth Day? Do you feel inundated by “green” in what you read, watch and hear? Do you wonder how you can participate in Earth Day, but don’t know where to start? Or, do you feel that the little thing that you might do for just one day isn’t enough, so you just decide not to do anything?
Here’s my tip…do something. I often wonder if I am doing enough, learning enough, teaching enough, and participating enough in the environmental movement. I have figured out that the answer is YES. We all do our part. Some of us more than others, but we can all do something. Start with today, Earth Day. Switch to a CFL, carry a reusable bag, recycle, drive less, choose low-VOC paint, buy organic, buy local, turn off your lights and electronics when not in use…it’s that simple.
To help you get started, here are some links to a few websites with more ideas and tips:
If you have more ideas or are still overwhelmed, please leave a comment on this post. We can all help eachother on this Earth Day…and that will help the environment!
Happy Earth Day!
