For our final “Going Green” installment, we encourage you to look back at all the ways you can live a more sustainable life, and zero in on one change you can make that you can really commit to for the long-haul. (Suggestions can be found throughout this series, including creating a lake-friendly lawn, practicing water conservation, “giving up to go green,” recycling, and shopping with an eye on the environment.) The Earth Day Network has a long list of ways you can act, and they are “collecting” more than a billion acts of green here: http://www.earthday.org/takeaction/campaigns.html (In fact, they’re aiming for 2 billion acts worldwide!)
As John Muir said, “When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
That tug can work for the better or for the worse. Take a moment today to think about a single thing YOU can change for the better. Like a stone skipped across Lake Hopatcong, it will have a ripple effect.
Happy Earth Day, folks, and thanks for sharing our “Going Green” journey these last six weeks!
