Happy Official Earth Day, but as they say, "Earth Day is everyday"! I'll recieved many amazing and warming stories from entrants of my Green Week Giveaway, and I thought I'd share it with you on this important, worldwide should-be holiday!
What are some ways you plan to save the Earth?
Jennifer from Book Crazy:
In the past year we have planted 6 new tree's-it's so fun watching them grow, just this year we planted a peach tree and my son is DIEING for it to produce fruit, though not sure it will this year, it's a baby, so hopefully soon.
We also recycle books- LOL I know right, book blog--but I donate to lots of places. We are also a member of freecycle.org-amazing place-I post my OFFERS often, and am so thrilled to get rid of stuff that we don't use anymore- just yesterday I posted a bag of my daughter's older clothes that she can fit into.
I've been recycling since I was little. At first, it was to make a couple of bucks, but now I also do more by unplugging electronics, always turning off the lights when I'm not in a room, my friends and I take weekly turns carpooling. I've also gotten some friends and family into recycling and making sure they don't waste so much water and energy. Last year over the summer, I volunteered in planting trees and flowers in my local park and some areas downtown. Plus, I'm also a vegetarian.
I plan to spread the word with my students. My seniors have already blogged about this in relation to their reading of Into the Wild. I also have a garden, a compost pile, and generally care about my environment. I live in one of the most wooded states (Maine) and spend a ton of time enjoying my surroundings. I would hate to see an increase in pollution in my beautiful state.
