NRDC sent me an entire email with "Ideas and Actions to Help You Celebrate Earth Day." Here are some of the items from their "Earth Day Toolkit:"
- A shopper's guide to buying forest-friendly tissue, paper towels and toilet paper. (I like Seventh Generation.)
- A Dozen Things You Can Do to Keep Yourself - and the Earth - HEALTHY. For example, eat organic, use non-toxic personal care and cleaning products, put your computer in sleep mode when not in use, and replace those bulbs!
- Eat local! (It gets easier when spring rolls along. The farmer's market here opens in two weeks. Yay!)
- Take action: Urge the Department of Agriculture to act now to save bees.
These are just a few examples in a large pool of green activism, information, and products that are out there and available for the next budding treehugger.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
