Earth Day this year is April 22nd! As a way to celebrate this year, I will be doing a short series on simples steps towards a more sustainable life. Many times the “Green” literature and organizations can be hard to understand and even harder to adopt in real life. My plan is to give you one simple step each day of April up to Earth Day that you can adopt to help move towards a more sustainable life.
Don’t feel like you have to do everything. Not everything works for everyone. Choose one of the suggestions and give it a try. If it doesn’t work for you, try something else. While I think these are easy steps that anyone can take, perhaps they aren’t right for you. If that’s the case, I hope that these ideas get the juices flowing and help you find ways to improve your lifestyle.
It isn’t about being the “greenest” or having the lowest carbon footprint. It’s about taking responsibility for the impact we have upon our environment and trying to be better stewards of the world with which God has entrusted us.
