Happy Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. I wanted to do something special but it kind of snuck up on me. Last year, I organized a bit of a blog hop and gave away a blog header/button. This year, notsomuch.

I'm sure you've already read a dozen posts that are more informative than anything I'd write here. If you haven't, this post by Lora at fever is a good one. Full of tips and tricks while not being all boring and snoozey.

So instead of reading a long post from me today, take a few minutes to recycle a plastic bottle, think before you print, hug a tree, or read a label. Because a whole bunch of small things can add up to make a big difference.

I loved your advice! I got an email that is simply a pledge that I posted. I am going to add some of your suggestions if you don't mind. It's kind of like recycling information! Have a HAPPY EARTHDAY!

Happy Earth Day back at ya. I was just remembering your blog hop from last year, as a matter of fact.

Happy Earth Day! I wish I had thought ahead so I could make some seed bombs for the day. Random flowers are fun. Oh well. Maybe next week.

Sorry, sorry, sorry! I'm a bad blogger! My Google thingy played up a while back and took some blogs off my following list, and I didn't get around to chasing them up. Sorry!


Hi though! :)

Happy Earth Day! Nice post, short and to the point. We all know the things we should do to preserve this wonderful earth we share.

I'm not good at making a lot of these changes all at once--too overhwelming to me. But as I think about your post from last year, I realize that since then I've started a)using reusable bags more often than not, b)bringing my own reusable cup to Starbucks and trying to remember to ask for a "real" plate when I get food there, and c)recycling plastic bags and other similar plastics that the grocery stores here accept for recycling.

So I'm still not as earth-friendly as I should be, I'll admit that. But I'm really happy realizing I'm actually taking steps in the right direction.

"A whole bunch of small things can add up to make a big difference." Words of wisdom to live by. Earth Day snuck up on me, too. We shouldn't wait, but incorporate good practices every day.

Take a few minutes to recycle a plastic bottle?

I'd like to, but I lack the necessary equipment. Ideally I'd have access to a large crushing machine. This unfortunately is not the case. I've been waiting by the road for a large truck so that I can flick the bottle under a wheel, but so far I've succeeded only in derailing a cyclist.
