Monday is Earth Day, a day to raise social consciousness about our lovely and bountiful home planet. I could go into the politics about Earth Day, but I really don’t want to ruin anyone’s day. I’m not the best environmentally conscious person out there, but I do try to be cognizant of my and my family’s impact on our world.
What better way to celebrate Earth than to have a picnic, surrounded by her beauty? Spend a day outdoors, reading, playing football, walking on trails, maybe getting a jump on Arbor Day and planting a tree, put in some new flowers…man, makes me want to head out now!
I’m sure you may be thinking to yourself how to have a picnic and still honor Earth Day, a traditional “green” holiday? Easy, with recyclable plates and cups! Many manufacturers’ offer recycled products or products made from renewable resources like sugar cane, so that we can shrink our carbon footprint.
No matter how you celebrate Earth Day, or even if you don’t, just keep in mind that if we all recycle, and try to use as many recyclable products, products made from recycled materials and renewable resources, we’ll be able to celebrate a healthy Earth for many millennia’s to come! Happy Earth Day!
