Earth Day Birthday
April 22nd, 2010
Earth Day is upon us again and again we are urged to do our part to preserve and look after the earth. I saw an Earth Day commercial on tv yesterday and I'm pretty sure it is the same one they used last year, which is appropriate I guess.It was urging me to try, for one day at least, to see what I could do in my life to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
I am not really one for recycling if I am being honest. I kind of like to go against the crowd, it gets on my friends nerves sometimes, but I'm weird and stubborn and sometimes it expresses itself in ridiculous ways. For example, I will shop at Earth Fare but to get back at them for charging 11 dollars for a pound of organic strawberries, I get them to double bag them in plastic bags and then put them in a paper bag.
I felt good about this too until I found out that their plastic bags are biodegradable.
Today, on Earth Day 2010, I am putting aside all my weird stubbornness and I am going to do something earth-friendly and green on purpose. I am going to do my part to preserve and look after the earth. I am for one day going to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

I like to send a birthday card to every one of my senior adults on their birthday, it's one of my favorite things to do. Like THESE I sent to Clyde and Jean Edwards last month. They are husband and wife and share the SAME birthday. I think that is so cool so I wanted their cards to be special and unique. Thinking about Earth Day being today, I thought that I would do my Good Earth Deed in combination with my birthday card sending, but I wasn't sure how I would do it at first.
Then I thought, Well , my birthday just happened... I got lots of cards...
I could Reuse and Recycle one of those thus Reducing my card waste!
And so I did. I hope Mrs. Martha Sauceman appreciates what we have done for the earth together (with the help of Diane Reed upon the urging of the recycled Earth Day commercial), and that this can inspire YOU to do your part to preserve and look after the earth.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
For those of you on the other side of the issue I have something to entertain you as well:
In honor of Earth day I painted this:
To make fun of recycling...
Happy Happy Earth Day 2010!!!
