Today is Earth Day. I can think of a few ways I can do my part. One thing I do all too often, is drive my kids to the bus stop. Rain or shine, we will walk the 3 blocks. My workout usually consists of me running out the door or riding my bike, right out my front door, so that is about as green as I can get. But if you usually drive to the gym, why not try biking or running there?
This weekend there is an Earth Day festival. I will try to attend this to learn about sustainability and green living. Hopefully I can attend a workshop about organic gardening. I want to have a garden this year. I love the idea of walking out my back door and grabbing some fresh tomatoes and herbs for a salad.
Maybe even I’ll unplug a bit..turn off the computer, maybe stop for a few minutes and not look at my cell phone. I’ll try to take a walk, and tune in to this amazing planet we call Earth.
Happy Earth Day…what will you do?
