Earth Day

April 22, 2010

With our theme of the month being Nature and today being Earth Day, I thought it would be appropriate to share a little about Earth Day. Earth Day Network is a wonderful site filled with all kinds of information on ways to get involved in helping our planet. There are so many things we can do just in our own home to help. I have made the commitment to get rid of paper towels. This has been the hardest one for me. I never realized how dependent I am on them until I took them away, but I will win. I am determined.

Last night my 6-year-old was running around turning off all of our lights. “Mom, did you know that if you aren’t using them they should be turned off?”. He’s been learning about it in school and he’s really excited about being able to make a change all by himself.  He, also, let me know that I should be bringing canvas bags to get our groceries. He’s right. I have been meaning to do this, too. I’m glad he’s there, a bundle of excitement, to encourage me to do what I know is better for the planet and ultimately us.

Happy Earth Day to all of you! I hope it’s been a good day for each of you.
