Lol! This slogan appeared on an Earth Day T-shirt in Wal-Mart that Austin loved. (He didn't actually end up purchasing said shirt as he is the most frugal person I have ever met, darn Dutch blood, but that's another story for another time.) And as crunchy, or tree-hugger-ish as this may sound, I really (kind of) agree with it. They weren't right about everything, in fact they got a lot of things waaaaaaaaay wrong. In fact I disagree with their views on nearly everything (drugs, sex, etc.). Everything except their opinions about the way we treat the planet.
The older I get, and the more my brain shifts into "mothering" mode, the more I think about the state of our planet, how what I do impacts the environment, and what kind of world I want to leave for my (future) children. I am not what I consider extreme in my views, but I do believe in making the small changes that positively impact our world.
For some great ideas and a lot of very easy adjustments, visit Co-op America and read their list of 22 Steps to Energy Efficiency. Not only will these tips conserve energy and help the environment, you will also notice a positive impact on your energy bills, too!
You may have noticed the LetsGoGreen.biz ads in my right sidebar and at the bottom of my page. Let's Go Green is a great company that delivers tons of eco-friendly products for some very reasonable prices. LetsGoGreen.biz is also sponsoring my very first GIVEAWAY!!! That's right, at the end of this week I will be announcing the giveaway of a product that will help one lucky winner tackle a "mountain" that we all have to "climb" on a depressingly regular basis!
Any guesses? :)
Thanks for reading!
