Earth Day 2010

Earth Day is April 22nd. Let every day be Earth Day by doing what you can to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Educate yourself on ways to restore, and protect the planet we call Home.

From the Nature Conservancy:

Reusable Bags

You can help save oceans when you use reusable shopping bags instead of plastic bags. Sure, it's a small step — but it can make a big difference in the health of our oceans.

Have doubts? Then dive in to a firsthand account from Conservancy Caribbean program director Phil Kramer about why plastics are so damaging to the ocean. Or, read how the Conservancy's Cara Byington had a crisis in the checkout line — after seeing the skeleton of a whale that died from eating plastic bags.

To help encourage others, share where you take reusable bags or where you've found your favorite tote. You can get a Nature Conservancy tote from Marketplace by Resolution, Inc. or Payless ShoeSource, both of which support The Nature Conservancy's conservation work.

Read more about the ways that the Nature Conservancy is helping the planet.

Izmet's Dream shop has a variety of canvas totes that are perfect for shopping.

Until next time....become the change you imagine.
