Kermit the Frog is a Liar

As Kermit the Frog famously said, “it’s not easy being green.”  Well sorry Kermie, but I think you’re mistaken.  Today, April 22, 2009  is Earth Day, and there’s no better time to discover the multitude of EASY things you can do to green your life.  There is no shortage of suggestions to be found on the internet for simple ways to shrink your carbon footprint and reduce your negative impact on mother earth.  A few of my faves from Green Style Magazine’s “101 Ways to Green Your Life” include:

  • Buy organic foods
  • Buy local products
  • Use reusable containers to bring lunch to work
  • Skip the bottled water
  • Bring your own grocery bag to the supermarket
  • Buy an insulated reusable coffee mug instead of using paper or styrofoam ones ( and PLEASE don’t use styrofoam cups as cup holders)
  • Get off junk mail lists
  • Take public transportation

And the list goes on, and on, and on!

And this one just amuses me: Buy organic undies!

So remember!  While he may represent a loving and enduring image from our childhood, Kermit the Frog cannot be trusted!  It IS easy being green!  And you can do it!

P.S.  For those of you out there with kids (or if you just happen to be an adult who loves Disney), the Disney Store is supporting Earth Day.  Bring in three plastic bottles, and receive a free gift!
