Happy Earth Day!

It's Earth Day; what better time to resume my blog? I'm so happy for the warmth of spring and the growing trends toward a green lifestyle. There are so many little things we can do that, when added up over all people or over a lifetime, can make a BIG difference. Today, I'm not only celebrating Earth, but also my wedding anniversary! What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day? How about making a New-Earth-Year's resolution?

I will start small by taking on a couple resolutions for the next month. If I can do it, I'll expand it to the rest of the year.
My challenge for the month:
1) I will not use ANY disposable plastic water bottles, plastic individual-sized soda/juice bottles, or disposable cups.
2) I will not take any plastic or paper bags during ANY shopping trip (exceptions made for bagging produce). This means that I will either need to remember my reusable cloth bags or carry items out in my hands. This pledge includes trips to clothing shops, food shops, drug stores, etc.
