Happy Earth Day! 2015

Happy Earth Day! I compiled a few resources you might like to find out more about what today signifies, what you can do, and what you can eat to celebrate our one and only earth.

Earth Day Information
-here's the official website for Earth Day
-here's a carbon footprint calculator (watch out - its results might surprise you [in a bad way])
-Earth Day on Wikipedia

What Can You Do?
-recycle! (or, if your town/workplace/apartment building doesn't have a good recycling plan, start one!)
-reduce your waste (or, even better - your purchases; ask yourself if you really need something and wait three days to buy it to determine if it's really something you need)
-take public transit or walk/ride your bike to work/school/events around town

What Can You Eat?
-I love these Earth Day Peanut Butter Cups from Spabettie
-go meatless for one day (or more)!
-eat local foods (prepared or grown less than 200 miles away)
-eats foods that are in season
-eat organically-grown foods

Today, I pledge to:
-eat things that don't come in packages
-eat foods that have been grown or prepared less than 200 miles from my town
-keep the lights off and heat down as much as I can

What do you plan to do for Earth Day?
