I'm a long time reuser & recycler - & since my mind has been otherwise occupied lately & I didn't write up anything new for Earth Day this year, I'm going to give links to a few items I wrote for Earth Day 2009. There is nothing in them that is obsolete, I think. For sure, I no longer live in Deep River, but I'm betting the library there still has all those neat books I recommended in my column for the local paper.
For sure too, there is a good (if not complete) list of good & inspiring things you can watch here.
Another Earth Day comes, & goes. If only, if only, if only! we humans would behave as though every day was Earth Day, hmmm?
Happy (B)Earth Day, whichever way you slice it, & wherever you are!
Here are the items I mentioned:
P.S. '12 Things YOU Can Do' was not written for Earth Day (can't remember now when I wrote it!?), but it too has some good tips & links. '15 Tips for environmentally friendly & frugal family life' is an oldie - written way back when I still had fond hopes of actually making a bit of $$$ with my writing. The tips are still applicable!!
P.P.S. Hey! Take 15 minutes & allow yourself to be inspired by Activist Extraordinaire Bill McKibben. It's a speech he gave in Washington. SO worth your time!!!
