Green Day

Earth Day is today, so do something green! Better yet, make it Earth Day every day in your life.

Here's one thing - just ONE THING - you can do right now to help save the planet. It's so easy anyone can do it, so no excuses, ok? Here it is:

Bring your own bag(s) to the grocery store.

That's it! So easy anyone can do it. What's that? You don't have one? Sure you do! Everybody has a bag. It doesn't have to be fancy. You can take the same grocery bag you got last time you went to the store and bring it with you this time. Or you can buy a reusable bag a the store if you'd like something a little sturdier. Or you can buy my favorite bag here.

Need more motivation than simply "saving the planet"? Really?? Ok, look at your child or your grandchild or your niece or your nephew or your friend's child. I think they'd probably reuse a bag for you, don't you?

There are many "shades" of Green and we're lighter Green than I'd like to be, but darker Green than many. If going Green sounds like too much effort, just try to become a little darker Green than whatever shade of Green you are now.

Great post! We are pretty green around here (in our home and in our jobs) but there is always more we can do. My thing right now is trying to not eat food that's been flown in from other hemispheres. Totally agree with you on the bag thing! I have some really pretty, sturdy reusable bags that are awesome and the checkers love them because they stand open, so they're easy to load groceries into. Happy Earth Day!

Of course, I meant "the Southern Hemisphere," not "other hemispheres" in my post above. :-)

Thanks for the clarification although now you have me wondering about "other" hemispheres! ;-)

Great goal to eat "local" as much as possible! Just another of the many very easy things we can all do!
