Earth Day-- Every Day
What I like about Earth Day is that it reminds us that our everyday actions can be a positive influence on the health of our environment. Every year I take stock on what I've been doing to reduce my carbon footprint, and every year, improvements can be made. Recently I've cut our household meat consumption to one day a week, improved our composting, and gone electronic on my household bills. Yet, paper still comes into the house, stray plastic bags creep into the closet, and I'm not sure how to get all the peanut butter out of the jar for recycling. It's a daily decision to strive for a smaller impact on the environment.
