Friday Food for Thought: Earth Day 2011

Happy Earth Day!  Started in 1970 by Sen. Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day now has over 200 million participants every year, involved in projects ranging from local recycling drives and tree planting to seminars on going green and town hall meetings on environmental change.  This year's theme is "A Billion Acts of Change."  We can all do something small, and together they add up to something big.

Some small things you can do:
  • change out your incandescent light bulbs for CFLs
  • plant some flowers, vegetables or herbs
  • shop with reusable bags
  • buy local food whenever possible
  • stop to appreciate the world around you!
Are you doing anything to celebrate Earth Day?
