Earth Day is coming up next week! Friday, April 22...to be exact.
Have you given any thought to how you will celebrate? It doesn't have to be big and earth shattering...just one small act of kindness to our beautiful earth will do just fine.....pick up a stray bit of trash.....take your kids for a walk to give them an appreciation for nature....collect a few items to recycle....use real, cloth napkins for the day (hey, you might find that you like it!).
So, if you're in on doing one nice thing for the planet (big or small) then head on over to Be Kind 2 Earth Day's Facebook Fan Page and "like" it to show your support. Then click on over here to register your state.
As for us, we'll be keeping it low key. I'm thinking of doing a flip-flop drop off at Old Navy followed by a nature walk and a picnic. The parks around here are generally super clean, but we'll bring along a grocery bag to collect any trash we might happen upon. And, if Levi has any say we'll be collecting stray leaves for a collage. The boy loves to make art. What can I say? We just might be related. ;)
I'll leave you with a little Mississippi factoid....did you know that we have 1.2 million acres of public lands just waiting for us to check them out? If you ask me, that's reason enough to go exploring!
