S is for Save, as in Save the Planet.
Today is Earth Day. For many folks it’s the one day a year that they may spend 5 min or so thinking about ways to improve the planet. If I’m being honest, I am more like those people then I care to admit. I am not a tree hugger. I eat meat and wear leather. I have not taken any moral stand against wearing fur. However, I do care about this big rock that we live on. This past crazy winter has me feeling like climate change is real. So, I am open to all kinds of suggestions on how I can do my part to protect the planet.
I don’t think we have to go to extremes to improve the environment. I think if we all take small steps to decrease our environmental footprint we can make big improvements. Last year I told you about how I have switched to tube free toilet paper. I have maintained that change all year. I also recycle regularly and have switched to the energy efficient lights. Now I need to find some other small changes to make to do my part in saving the planet. Off the top of my head I’m thinking, not letting the water run when I wash dishes or brush my teeth, turning out more lights in the house, and not buying so many new things (I have been reading some interesting blogs about minimalist living).
Doing a little something to make the world a better place can give you a lot of Joy. What little changes have you made to help save the planet? What things can we do, that are not too inconvenience, in our lives but offer a big return to the environment?
