An Internal Celebration of Earth Day

Earth

April 22 marks the 40th year Earth Day has been celebrated around the world.

Over the last several years, I have watched Earth Day become increasingly a holiday about green products. And that is not to say that green products are bad – I’m ecstatic that there are so many wonderful alternatives to the things I need on a daily basis. I remember when I first became an environmentalist in college in the 90s. It was a tough world to be in – many people thought we were nuts. There were few alternatives to eating sustainably – farm raised anything couldn’t be found, organic was not a word I ever remember using, and very very few clothes or other daily items were sustainably made. So there are good things about a push toward green products and green consumerism, for sure.

Come read the rest at the co-op!

I would love to read your thoughts as well – please stop and leave a comment!
