Happy Earth Day! Free Graphics All of The Time!

What a beautiful earth God has made! I hope you are all doing your part today and everyday in trying to preserve it. I would definitely honor my friend A. (you know who you are!) as my "greenest friend".

Here are five easy things you can do if you haven't already:
  1. Change your incandescent light bulbs to energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulbs. Not only will you be helping our earth, but it will save you money!
  2. This is easy but so many of us are guilty - unplug your cell phone charger when finished using it. If you want to do more, unplug all power draining appliances when not in use.
  3. Use reusable shopping bags. I actually prefer it as more products fit in my bags and they are easier to haul inside! I store them in my car so I won't forget them. You can also get some really cute ones here :
  4. Turn off the lights when you leave a room. (I say this one often to the kids and I am guilty of forgetting!)
  5. Buy reusable water bottles. I haven't done this yet, but plan on it! The bottles from Waterweek are great!

Happy Earth Day, Happy Day!!!

P.S. I thought in only apropos to include some bees!

I agree with all of ya'lls hints except for the light bulbs. The vote is still out on them. Here along the coast, many communities are banning them because they are full of mercury that we don't want to escape into our waters and impact the fish. I too love the bees.
