OK, Earth Day...

Earth Day really meant something a few years back when not everyone was aware of it but now just like Mother's Day, it has been commercialized. That is the direct opposite of the Earth Day philosophy. Hey, buy more stuff to show your support of Earth Day. More synthetically made, pollution producing, landfill filling stuff for Earth Day. Sure the stores are selling recyclable, more sustainable items, that you really don't need in the first place!

Do me a favor, celebrate Earth Day by not doing anything unnecessary today. Period. And do this everyday.

A Little Greener with Starbucks

Starbucks is launching a program to get its customers to bring in their own reusable cup for coffee. It's called "The Big Picture." By bringing in your own coffee mug you can save trees. Now you probably think, "What does it matter if only one person does this?" Well, at their website Starbucks shows you how over time you too can help save trees and make the air better. For me, it comes to something like 18,000 trees over 50 years. That's not bad with just one little difference. And Starbucks also says they will give you a 10 cent discount on coffee thereafter if you bring in your reusable cup. I know 10 cents off $5! They're too generous. Don't do it for you or Starbucks, do it for your kids and grandkids who deserve a cleaner world.
Even if you don't go to Starbucks use your mug elsewhere too! Coffee, tea, and soda all taste just fine in your handy dandy enviro mug!

Don't forget to keep you reusable bags in your car and purse! They are so in vogue and handy too!
