I'm celebrating by working an extra hour today. Sleepy's decided it would be a good idea to celebrate earth day by keeping the showrooms open (and therefore, the lights on) for an extra hour. Way to go, employer.

I helped tend ground for a urban garden in Detroit today. Early spring veggies planted, and watering system, both rain gathering and back up city water installed.

I hope they start more of these, its a wonderful program.

Nothing special on google's site for me... then again I have that background option.

As for Earth Day. I spent the day driving around and using the same amounts of electricity and expelling the same amount of pollutants that I normally do.

HeLiXe, what a grand photo! What a good way to remind us all, how fragile and beautiful our planet is.

I love that picture :) I felt bad this Earth Day. All of my life I've recycled everything I could. I moved to another city, and recycling is not popular here. I found out where I could go to recycle, but getting to it has proven too difficult -_-

Oh I know that feeling! I've been recycling aluminum and glass for ages...literally 30 years. It's just a normal part of life, where I live. I went to Texas (:yuck:) where they recycle *nothing*, and they all thought I was a wacko greenie for even asking about it!

Some of us like it here. :frown:

"They" recycle everything, here in the DFW area. We have two separate trucks that come around on garbage day. One for recycling, and one for "regular" trash.

Yes that's how it is here. The recycling plant is mainly for industry/commercial use.

No offense intended :redface:. Where I was, around San Antonio, it wasn't done.

None taken. No place is perfect for everyone. I'm surprised they didn't recycle, though. It's a big deal around here.

Unfortunately it contained obscene language, so it was deleted, per our guidelines.
