Earth Day has come and gone and, as the song says, ‘what have we done’? Started as part of a teaching assignment in 1970, Earth Day was designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment in all of us. What inspired you this year?
Within the DMD Network, we decided to start a little challenge, collecting ideas about what environmental ideas inspired us and what could we do to live a “greener” life. Ideas arose from washing detergents and plastic dry cleaning bags, to thrift shopping and living a vegetarian lifestyle. That is the wonderful thing about the idea of environmental awareness, whether you are a dyed-in-the-wool “antiquer,” a hard-core activist, or just curious whether hand washing dishes is better than using the machine, each of us can do our part to make a difference in this world.
I hope the challenges we investigated can inspire you as well, not just on Earth Day but through out the entire year.
