Ok, hand up high if you do something to celebrate Earth Day!
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller…Bueller?
My hand is halfway up. I confess. We don’t do something specific to celebrate Earth Day. I like the idea of having an Earth Day tradition, though. My son and I will be helping with a local event near home this weekend to honor Earth Day; composting and picking up litter downtown.
In our family, we try to do “Earthy” life all the time. And what I mean by that is making an effort constantly to be responsible for the messes we make, and cleaning up after ourselves as we go, conserving energy and water, talking about caring for the Earth because it is a gift from God. Taking a trash bag with us when we go for walks around our neighborhood is common practice, and my kids take it very seriously. They are trash-picking kids.
Because it is Earth Week, and because I need to take the plunge and step out there, I am finally launching this blog. Count this as the little seed I am planting this year in honor of the upcoming Earth Day.*
What can you do this week to honor Earth Day? I’ll be giving some of my ideas this week. What are yours?
