Happy Earth Day!

What are you going to do to mark Earth Day? I already:
Hang my clothes out to dry
Wash laundry in cold water
Use CFL light bulbs
Use sleep mode on the computers
Open the dishwasher after washing to air dry dishes
Use cloth bags for groceries (when I remember them, I'm getting better)
Shop second hand. I love thrift stores, dumps, and yard sales. We call our local dump the "Canal Flats Wal-mart" because most of the neighbors recycle things they find there.

To mark Earth Day, I am going to pick up the appalling litter I am finding by the trail I walk the dog on.

Good On ya! (love those Canadian expressions)
Thanks for luring me over to your blog for a visit with your thoughtful comments.

I, too, picked up litter way back in the woods, and hung out laundry - but I do that quite often for my own selfish reasons of liking the scent and feel of clothing, towels and sheets dried outdoors.

Mostly I pondered on this earth - and my place in it on this Earth Day.

LOVELY photo! and yes, what can we all add to what we already do?
