Things to do for Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! Here’s what to do in commemoration of the day:

–Plant a whole bunch of plants at your house, either in pots or in the ground if you have it. Study their preferences

–Prune any tree in sight. They like haircuts. Make art or tomato stands with the waste

–Locate and read a local plan to take action between Earth Day and Mayday.

–Don’t drive

–Pick up some garbage and/or recycling from the ground

–Buy someone a reusable water container

–Use natural light

–Decide that you don’t even need something you were thinking about buying

–Block a major road in your town with debris or handmade sawhorses that look like the transportation department’s real ones

–Start (or finish?) reading Edward Abbey’s Monkey Wrench Gang

–Tell everyone you know that you’re doing something for the Earth while they’re still being consumers

–Green-shame any “green” fools you know and direct them to something real

–Sabotage any big, transportation-dependent business

What will you do?
