I try to do my part to protect the earth every day not just every April 22nd. Now that I'm working at RAFB, I have even more opportunities to recycle paper and plastic and I take full advantage of that! I wash my clothes in cold water and never leave my water running when I'm brushing my teeth. I don't use paper towels or table napkins (thanks, Brandy!). I buy local produce whenever possible and I compost most everything I can't eat. I keep my garbage down to one bag a week and most weeks, it's half full.
I found this photo at Earth911 and I thought it was really hilarious. It's the ONLY memory I have of the Atlanta Pop Festival! I've always said all I could remember about being there was seeing trash on the ground.

Not bad for a 3-year-old's memory, huh??
