As a blogger who focuses largely on sustainability here and who weaves it into Green & Gorgeous as often as possible, I talk and think about sustainability often. As a result, I tend to neglect Earth Day, because I try to be mindful of the Earth every day. But in the future, I’m going to do better about making a big deal of Earth Day on the blogs, because it’s nice to have the whole world paying attention to an issue that is so near and dear to me.
Today, make ONE change in your life. Just one. Get your next dining table from a thrift store instead of buying new. Cut out paper towels and use regular towels and dishcloths instead. When there’s lovely spring weather, turn off the air conditioning and open the windows and doors. Sign up for a Recyclebank account and start earning points for learning about green issues and, possibly, for recycling in your area. And now, you can even use your points to shop for green products.
Plus, head over to Green & Gorgeous to enter my $25 gift certificate giveaway from Soft clothing so you can get some organic clothes for your kids!
It’s not hard to find small ways to make a difference. And once you begin to make that mental shift, it only gets easier.
