Happy Earth Day

I'm keeping it green every day by arranging my life so I drive as little as possible. As a side benefit it keeps a little green in the pocket too. I'm lucky enough to be able to work less than a block from my house. My daughter's schools (oh yeah she's at two till kindergarten starts in the fall) are both walking distance from our house. Sometimes I do have to pull the kid in a wagon, but I hardly emit any carbon.
I know this isn't possible for everyone, but I would recommend it. Tonight we walked to the school open house, then walked to dinner with neighbors and then walked home.

Course, my husband drives 45 minutes to work, each way. So we probably just break even. So I'll keep using my clothe grocery bags, composting, and all the rest. In the hopes that it makes up for it a bit more.

Happy Earth Day
FYI I'm pretty sure Earth Day is on April 22 in honor of Eddie Albert, it's his birthday.
