Happy Earth Day: April 22, 2013

Happy Earth Day, April 22, 2013

I downloaded this poster from Kashi.com - I love their products, and their mission statement/ commitment statement.  The four easy ideas they provide for Earth Day, can easily be performed any and/or everyday.  

#1 Buy Local Food ~ #2 Pay Bills Online ~ #3 Start A Carpool ~ #4 Adjust Your Thermostat


#1, #2, & #4, no problem...#3, not so much...we don't carpool, I must admit.  However, we are a one-car household, and living in the city also makes walking feasible; everything I need to do is a close by.  

I'd like to also mention:  
RECYCLE - most municipalities offer recycling services.

HANG DRY your laundry - even indoors, especially during hot summer months...why add more heat into you home by running the dryer?  

Finally, get yourself a RE-USABLE TRAVEL CUP, both for hot and cold - with a RE-USABLE STRAW...do you know how many of these end up in landfills? Here is a great post from the Ocean Conservancy (dot) org on plastic straws.

What are you doing for Earth Day?

I have not been sponsored, or compensated in any form, for this post...all thoughts expressed were my own, except for the pretty poster - as stated above.

  4. I love your post and the great visual aid that you put with it. I get SO SAD when I see how little people care about the Earth. My husband said when he went to work (as an electrician) he said "Happy Earth Day!" to people and they were responding by saying "f*** Earth Day" ...?!!?!? I truly could have cried. BUT seeing people who DO CARE and who spend time thinking of ways to minimize our impact makes me feel a little better. Thanks for cheering me up. :)
