I remember that first earth day (yes I am that old!) I was in Junior High and the big plan was for people to walk home instead of riding the bus to be good to the environment. I called my Mom and asked if I could participate, she said no. Now I'm sure her answer had something to do with the fact that it was a three mile walk, that involved crossing a highway and a railroad track. But I only saw it as unfair that I couldn't do what I wanted, so I "accidentally" missed the bus! Being environmentally conscious was harder than I thought. Not only did it take forever for me to get home but I got in trouble too.
As an adult, I try to be good to our earth. I recycle paper products, bottles, cans; I have been buying re-useable items so I don't have so much trash. And of course the buying and selling of vintage items is a fun way to reuse and recyle . What do you do?
