It doesn’t have to be earth shattering…

Hellooooooo spring!  The sun is out,  the winter coat is at the back of the closet, and it’s almost time to break out the flip-flops.  So what does spring mean besides a wardrobe change?  It means Earth Day is here!  Okay, okay, so maybe Earth Day doesn’t bring with it as much excitement as some other holidays, but awareness is growing.  There are events scheduled nation-wide designed to educate the public and perhaps, if we’re lucky, improve environmental awareness.

Earth Day’s official date is Wednesday April 22, and Boston area events will be held in the days prior to and following.

If you can’t make it to any of these events, I urge to rethink some of your small daily activities.  If you’re going for coffee, bring your own travel mug and save a paper cup.  If you’re going grocery shopping, bring your own tote and save a plastic bag.  If you’ve got errands to do, do them all at once rather than driving to and from home.  Better yet, walk to your errands, or take public transportation.   And I certainly hope you’re ALL already recycling 🙂

There are little things that people can do every day to make a difference…little things that don’t take much effort.  The changes you make don’t have to be earth shattering, they just require a little thought.
