"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect." ~Chief Seattle, 1855
Earth Day. Renewal. Reminder. Education. It's all good.
As my family well knows I get excited about recycling and garbage reduction. Our recycle bins are well used. My compost bin is well stocked. Our garbage pick up is down to about once every three weeks. By the way, Mabel restoration isn't the greenest activity in the world...
I love to figure out a more natural (and usually less expensive) way to make things. Recently I have begun to make my own laundry detergent, dishwashing machine detergent and flavored creamer (still perfecting this, but it is pretty darn good!). It's been fun.
I am not a gardener. I've tried, but it isn't really "my thing" so what I can do is shop local and support my local economy including businesses, farms, etc. One of my favorite places is The Green Barn. Love it there.
Finally, today (and tomorrow) if you live locally you should go to Sole Obsession and pick up some Simple shoes (if you don't live locally give Kelly a call - she ships! yay!). These are mine. I love them. A lot.
So. To recap:
*Earth Day everyday.
*and a link to past Earth Day posts that aren't quite so random and disjointed! :)
Happy Day friends!
