Earth Day!!!

Yes, it's almost as exciting as Christmas
day for me. And sadly enough, I'm not exaggerating.

I don't know where to start! Earth Day's become so mainstream
that you can throw a rock and hit a store doing a giveaway. Many of
them are, unfortunately, just trying to cash in on Earth Day for
their own selfish purposed (shame on you, Disney!) so I won't tell
you about most, but I will tell you this one - Pottery Barn Kids is
giving away free plants, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Take it home and enjoy
taking care of it - and eventually planting it in your back yard -
with your child.

Looking for ways to celebrate? Google "pick your own" and your
state, and find out if there's a place near you with some
strawberry picking or rhubarb picking or whatever available. Head
to your local Home Depot and spend a buck on a seed packet and
start some seeds in dixie cups and your kitchen window. Throw out
your stinky, icky cleaners and crack open a bottle of vinegar and a
box of baking soda. Ride bikes to school with your kids. Buy
organic for the day. Go out to dinner at a place that supports
local farmers.


And then tell me about it. I wanna know - how do you celebrate?
