Is Earth Day a bunch of propaganda, or just a nice way to remind ourselves that we need to take care of the planet instead of polluting it?
I’m in the latter camp, and I try as much as I can to do my part by saving water, recycling, using as many green products as I can, and cutting down on my family’s waste and consumption.
My secret shame, though, is that I can’t seem to give up the fifteen minute showers. I mean, hey, I’ve got really long hair, it takes a while to shampoo and condition that stuff! Excuses aside, no matter what I do, I can’t seem to get my shower under fifteen minutes.
You can go here to view some great Earth Day activities for kids, one of which includes watching or reading Dr. Suess’ The Lorax with your kids. Or go here to see some events that might be happening in your neck of the woods!

My favorite is using recycled materials to make your own drip irrigation system, such as the one found here. Not only are you recycling, it really cuts down on the water you use for your plants, while at the same time delivering them enough to thrive!
