Get your green on! Here comes Earth Day

Attention all ecofeminists and earth advocates:

 Earth Day is this Friday, April 22.

Although we don't need a designated day to perform an "act of green," here are some simple things we can do and encourage others to follow our example:

  • Pick up a piece of garbage and put it in a proper receptacle.
  • Recycle a soda can or plastic bottle.
  • Bring a reusable bag to the grocery or drug store.  Throw an extra one in your car.

    (See related event below.)
  • Go meatless for one day -- one of the best things you can do for the planet.
  • Switch to one nontoxic cleaning product.
We can't do it perfectly, but every little bit helps.

Also, check your local newspaper or website for local Earth Day events in your area.

Here in Troy, Mich., Whole Foods Market at 2880 W. Maple Road is sponsoring a plastic bag recycling event on Friday, April 22.  Bring 10 or more bags and receive a free recycled tote while supplies last.  No purchase necessary.
