Sustainability is everywhere. Last year alone a plethora of large consumer magazines came out with “green” issues—May 2007 Vanity Fair, Issue 27 Ready Made, May 2007 Elle and March 2007 Domino magazine, to name a few. Trade publications are hammering the idea into their respective readers; I should know from my concrete editorial job. Movies such as An Inconvenient Truth have shocked the public back to reality and living a more healthy, eco-friendly world has become even more important.
Around Earth Day, I began thinking. I remember a report I wrote on landfills in fifth grade—obviously before my time. I was so appalled by evidence of 15-year-old hot dogs still intact and the millions of tons of paper products poured into our limited land resources. But some where along the line I got lazy. Actually, down right ignorant. I’d tell myself I was doing my part, but obviously, I could have done more.
So in 2007, I came up with the idea of pledging to do one green thing a day. It doesn’t have to be big. It can be quite small really, but that I would try to make a small change on my lifetime impression on the Earth. So this blog will be dedicated to that progress. Please join me by doing one green thing yourself.
