Happy Earth Day!

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.  ~Native American Proverb

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir

From Earth Day Network:

Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest opportunity – an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean energy economy now and for the future.

I’ve been doing a good job of bringing reusable bags to the grocery store, but I need to be better about bringing them to Target and other places I go for “just a few things”. I’m also making sure we conserve energy, recycle more, and I’m even being more careful with things I buy for the cats.

What are you doing for Earth Day?
