This is my tribute to Earth Day, which this year is Thursday April 22, just a few days away. When I was thinking about what I would say about Earth Day, I realized I had more to say than I have space for in this blog post. While I have more “green” practices I would like to adopt, all around me are “green” things I have done most of my life just because it makes sense.
More to come each day this week.
What do you do that's "green"?
