For a green blogger, what one chooses to post on Earth Day carries quite some significance.
I thought about adding my voice to those expressing disgust at the commercialization of Earth Day. But I tried that two years ago.
And this year?
The same company that I took to task on Earth Day 2008 had their PR firm approach me about publicizing their tactless displays…
I thought about writing an update about “A Travesty on Earth Day.” It was two years ago Earth Day when a Bethesda developer chose to chop down eight beautiful, healthy, four-story high, towering trees in the heart of downtown to make way for a condo building….
Two years later…and those trees are gone forever, with no luxury building in sight.
I thought about writing an update post on the launch of my client, Green My Parents.
But heck, I spent the better part of the day tweeting about Green My Parents anyway!
Instead, I decided the best thing I could do for Earth Day was to get outside.
Watched as my eldest boy admired a tree branch.
Let my younger son think that leaves were a type of “toy” from the Earth.
And me? There’s nothing like lying in the soft, sunlit grass – enjoying Mother Earth. (Even when reminders of the constant pull of our commercial culture are literally right at hand).
And your Earth Day?
