I remember when Earth Day was quite an event, even here in nowheresville. The local conservation area handed out little trees, there were school events it was written up in what passes for a local paper.
Now it is pretty much a non event. The trees have long since ceased to be handed out, the schools seemed to have missed it, you would think that things have improved.
I personally marked Earth Day by buying reusable shopping bags and more earth friendly cleaning products. I don’t have a car so I’m already doing my part year round that way. I recycle, garden organically, and try to be energy conscious.
Funny how none of those things will net me any tax credits or other forms of bribery that seem to be the only weapons in the environmental arsenal at the moment.
Lots of good info including this video at Earth Day Canada
