Earth Day 2010

On the official Earth Day website, these were some of the suggestions people sent for helping take care of our planet:

  • I will not litter and I will help the environment.
  • I want to use recycled papers rather than new ones so I can save a tree from being cut.
  • I pledge to recycle and be as energy-efficient as possible.
  • We recycle, use canvas shopping bags and garden organically.
  • I will take shorter showers and use a water-saving shower head.
  • I will walk, ride my bike, and take public transportation instead of driving.
  • I will use a reusable water bottle and bring a mug to the coffee shop.
  • I’ll be sending this message to all my students and save more energy.
  • I will bring my own bags to the grocery store.
  • I will pay my bills online instead of receiving bills in the mail.
  • Drying clothes on a rack instead of in the drying machine.
  • I’m becoming a Vegetarian today!
  • My four-year-old sister and I are growing beans to add green to our Earth.
  • I will call the local utility company and check if they offer a green energy program to power homes with wind and solar.
  • I will organize a clean-up in my school and pick up litter whenever I see it.
  • I will remember to turn off the lights in my office every time I leave it.
  • My class will be planting trees and vegetables around our school.
  • I will use the stairs for up to 5 flights.
  • I will work against destruction of forests in India.
  • I will use rainwater in my vegetable garden.
  • I will pick up the trash on the beach.
  • I will use all natural products with no chemicals.
  • I am going to make a butterfly garden.
  • I will grow a tree…

What will you do? Send us your ideas!

    If everyone else is going to do these things then I won’t need to do any of them. [Ha Ha :)] We recycle everything we can and turn off all lights not being used and keep our heat down to 60 degree’s all winter long. These plus the ones we do a little now & then.

    Hello, Liliana! Thanks for your email to me.

    Sure, no problem with the photo, etc. but please just link to my blog, all right?

    –Re: your photo and comments for Earth Day, I will continue to treat every day as Earth Day.

      Bibi,
      I will add the link to your blog on my own. Are you interested in doing the same? I have forwarded your URL to everyone I know. I’ve been reading your postings and they make me feel homesick.
      I will use your picture and recipe for pasted peppers and make sure your name and link are prominently displayed as a source. Best to you!

  3. Liliana, just saw your posting on Bibi’s blog and now see that you are in Michigan. As am I, south of Kalamazoo. I follow Bibi’s site because I spent 4 months in Beograd in 1969 and enjoy seeing the city as it is today.

      Helen,
      the world is indeed a small place. My daughter and nephew are students at Kalamazoo College. I live in Ann Arbor.

      Beograd is my home town, my favorite city in the world.
      Please write again.
      Best,
      Liliana
