Happy Earth Day!

As I get older, I really want to do my part and try to live greener and try to protect this beautiful land of ours.  I am especially concerned at the amount of plastic being found in our oceans and lakes and the dire consequences it is having on many fish and birds to reptiles and mammals, etc.  Many are consuming large amounts of these plastics, often times resulting in death and many are now considered endangered or in threat of becoming extinct.  Unfortunately, nothing can be done about what's already out there(with the exception of volunteering to try to clean up this mess), but let's make a real effort to try to cut back on the amount of waste we produce, especially plastics, which most are not really recyclable and take thousands of years to decompose and can release harmful toxins into the environment.  

So, go out and plant a tree  ~ not only do they add beauty, 
but they provide much needed oxygen and help cool the environment. 

If you can't do that, take little steps to improve what you can ~  using paper instead of plastic, brown bagging it, using your own bag, using environmental friendly products (I love Seventh Generation) you get the idea...
