If you want the free stuff – mostly in the States I am thinking, click here How to get free stuff on Earth Day. Personally, I think I am going for the Babies R Us free reusable tote bag plus 25% discount off all the clothing and shoes you can fit into the bag. That will make a good gift.
Yes, Earth Day is way over commercialized and just plain cheesy – big noise, small impact. Still, it plays a part, and no, i won’t give you list of 15 things you can do. How do i know what you can do?
I will give you a non-Earth Day two-part challenge (whatever you do, DO NOT do these on Earth Day!):
1. Make every day/minute/second ethical decisions about your life, no matter what your station is in society.
2. Learn, read, learn, log on and read, more about the issues so you have the context to make your own informed ethical decisions.
No matter how close we are to disaster, we will make the world a better place incrementally, with small decisions that collectively move us to big ones.
Have a happy Earth Day!
p.s. Here is what i have read that gives me context for my ethical decisions. (taken from a great website)
