Earth Day!

You didn't think I would blog today without mentioning Earth Day, did you?

Three Earth-related things I love:
  1. Planet Earth. Seriously. If you have never watched it, watch it immediately. It's about $60 from the Discovery Channel Store, but you can get it on Amazon for around $25! Buy the whole series. Just do it. Rent it first if you want, but trust me, this is something worth having in your collection. There's a scene from "Seasonal Forests" that I replay over and over in my head if I need a pick-me-up. Click here and go down to forests: leaps of faith, approximately 1:40 into the video. Good lord I love it.
  2. Envirosax. Very cute alternatives to the reusable bags your local grocery store sells/gives away. More expensive than those, most likely (they will usually run $0.99-$2.00; the ones on this website will run you around $10 apiece).
  3. If you want to send someone a card the old-school way, try sending these cute little babies. These cards come printed with instructions to moisten and bury in the ground - they come embedded with wildflower seeds! Lovely!

I hope you all had fantastic Earth Days...mine wasn't as sunny as I would have liked, but it rained a bit this evening, which is good for the planet! April showers bring May flowers, right? :-)
