Happy Earth Day friends!!!
This Earth Day, let’s talk frankly. I know it’s hard to live life as eco-consciously as many of us would like. I admit I’ll occasionally throw away a glass bottle if there’s no recycling nearby. I still buy clothes once in a while at H&M and Forever 21. They’re cute, cheap and disposable. But each year I get better, and I feel more and more guilty each time I buy something I know was made cheaply (in more ways than one). Slowly but surely, my lifestyle and my wardrobe are becoming more, well, green.
But, to paraphrase a very wise frog: it ain’t easy. That’s why days like Earth Day and events like Earth Hour are so great. They’re both reminders that we should be recycling and turning off lights every day, as well as opportunities for us to go above and beyond our usual efforts. I’ll admit, all I did this Earth Day was pick up some trash on the beach with my friends. But I’ll also admit that I don’t regularly pick up trash on the beach. So I guess that’s a start.
The next step will be: pick up trash more often. Remember to turn the water off when I brush my teeth. Take shorter showers. Buy energy-saver light bulbs. And of course, practice the seven habits of highly effective eco-fashionistas.
What did you do this Earth Day? What’s your Earth Day resolution?
