Today is the 40th Earth Day. I can’t believe 1970 was 40 years ago but that’s probably best discussed in a different post.
I’m a little cynical about Earth Day – it seems to be filled with celebrations that generate a lot of trash and companies are throwing the term Earth Day around in order to sell products that really aren’t that green. I also think that Earth Day should be “celebrated” every day.
I don’t eat meat, I try to eat and shop locally, I don’t drive or own a car, I live in a small apartment, I am careful with my utility usage, and I spend a lot of time considering how my choices impact the world around me.
