Earth Day 2011


Happy Earth Day everyone!

I'm really inspired by this family, The Zero Waste Home, and I think they have some great tips for making our lives a little earth-friendlier.  I use cocoa powder as eyeshadow and/or bronzer when I go in public now, thanks to their tip.  It works!  I think it's fun, and far less overwhelming, to incorporate changes towards a cleaner and greener life a little at a time.  If we all choose to add one more better-for-the-earth thing to our lives today, imagine the potential impact.

Stop by earthday.org for more ideas and to pledge an act of green.

I'll be unplugging for the day, planting some seeds in toilet paper roll planters, dyeing some eggs with turmeric, and if the rain and snow holds off, picking up trash by the road with the kids.

Have a great Friday, everybody!

Happy Earth Day Lisa.
I'll be spending the day transplanting varieties of pepper seedlings. The rain has stopped for a bit and the sun is out. We're heading to the 80s this afternoon. Can you say sauna weather?

Happy happy Earth Day! I'm not doing much more than I usually do over here. Maybe I should be. I have the day off, though, so I am getting a lot of my own work done! If only the rain and clouds would go away... Your succulents look lovely, btw :)
