Going Green in Columbus

The official Earth Day 2008 is on April 22nd but Columbus will recognize it on Saturday, April 26th.  This local campaign is unique because it is not about raising funds, it's about the central Ohio community volunteering their time to unite and clean up the earth and make the city of Columbus even more beautiful.  

I also wanted to take a moment to thank Mother Nature for helping to raise awareness about Earth Day.  It's obvious that she is providing some amazing sunny spring days to remind humans what they are destroying.  After the walk I just took, I think I just made up my mind to do my part.  I will be signing up to volunteer on Saturday, and I am done with plastic grocery bags.

I am sure there is a lot more that I can sacrifice, and I will continue to post on the subject.  Feel free to comment and share any ideas!

Absolutely love my beige grocery totes. So much larger than plastic or paper grocery bags. Very trendy looking. They make great gift bags too! No more plastic for me either!

Whole Foods has the best bags, called "Better Bags." They are a generous size, sturdy and CHEAP - only $0.99 a bag!
