It’s that time of year again. Earth Day. It’s a week long green orgy, where people show their love for the Earth. Becoming “green” is the new black. It’s my opinion that this new movement is not a fad. Sure, you see many instances of “green washing”, but many companies are making a conscious effort to reduce their impact on the planet. And, we as consumers are able to make little and big choices everyday to support the Earth. It’s the only one we got, so I hope that this April 22nd you can find new ways to green your life and make lasting changes for our future.
