Happy Earth Day!

It's here again- Earth Day.
  • April 22 was the birthday of actor Eddie Albert. Because of Eddie Albert's early work with environmental causes and groups, when International Earth Day was created, it was decided it must be held on April 22 because that is his birthday.
This is the day we all take notice of our impact on the earth and think about how we can do better to conserve and restore and protect out environment. Be More Green.

Here you can post what your plan is to be more green. You can see the map and see what others have pledged to do to help.

Even the comics are getting in on the festivities. Over 45 different comics are addressing the issues of climate warming, carbon footprints and pollution.

If you are interested in learning more on our impact-
watch this clip on the Story of Stuff and be more aware.

So think of ways you can help.
Combine your shopping into one trip.
Use less paper towels, plates and tissues to conserve trees.
Hand wash dishes to save water and electric.
Turn off lights when not in the room.
Unplug appliance when finished using them.
or do like me- sew on a treadle and save electric!!

So Think Green and let's help save the planet.

Later Darlin'
