I spent the weekend setting out all the flowers I grew from seed over the winter. It's lovely to see them nestled in their garden beds. I have a vision in my mind's eye of all their contrasting colors and textures.
As I do my research for my Earth Day book, I'm hyper aware of the environment around me, and my impact upon it. Every time I go to turn on a light, use a disposable, or have the urge to buy something, I ask myself, "Do I really need that?"
What ways have others found to lower their impact on the earth?
If you participated in the first Earth Day, I'd still love to hear from you. You can email me through my website
And the new and shiny tentative title for the book is: When Rivers Burned: Gaylord Nelson and Earth Day.
