Last weekend’s Earth Day festivities were a huge success here in Santa Barbara. The turnout exceeded last year, with hundreds of people walking and cycling to our local sunken gardens for tips on greening the planet and freebies to help get started. I walked away with several canvas bags for grocery shopping and some biodegradable dish soaps.
The true success of Earth Day awareness will be measured by what people do next. And it doesn’t have to be a lot. If we can all contribute one small thing each day, we can reduce our impact considerably. To get you started, here is an elegantly designed site from Wire&Twine with 50 Ways to Help the Planet. Pick one and try it.
