I've always been a huge fan of Earth Day. When I moved to NYC in summer of 1990, I really hadn't known there was an Earth Day, but come April 1991, there were signs and ads regarding the South Street Seaport weekend celebration. I headed on over with some friends and while it wasn't a huge party like some events in NYC are, it has certainly gained in popularity. I've always been a recycler (and drove my parents crazy when I'd be rinsing out bottles, jars, and cans and they would say "just throw it in the regular garbage", but I just couldn't bring myself to do that). I try to do my part to conserve and I'm going to teach Ryan the same. She already knows teh separate garbage cans and the 'turn off the lights' - 'shut off the water'. I hope she continues to be a green girl!
Wishing everyone a Happy Earth Day - I'd love to hear if you did something different today in honor or what you normally do......Anyone??
