Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day everyone!  Why does the earth only get one day?  Shouldn't it be earth day every day?

We have never done alot of recycling in our household, but in the past year mom & dad have been trying to be green.  The one thing they realized is that it would be hard to change their habits, but if they did a little bit at a time, it might be easier.  They started out by doing one thing - recycling old newspapers.  This led to aluminum cans and plastic bags.  Mom & dad also use the reusable shopping bags that most stores now have - it may cost a few dollars initially, but the cost is worth having a clean planet!  Being green doesn't mean just recycling - it also means using products that don't hurt the environment and products that are made from recycled products.

There are so many things that our parents still have to do to make this a totally green household, but by doing a little bit at a time they will eventually get there.

Our friend Stubby's blog has helped mom alot in this process.  Stubby is very wise and knows all about being green.  If you get a chance check out his blog.

Another friend of ours, Puglet, has a wonderful video showing that he recycles.  If a pug can recycle, why not everyone?  Check out his video here - you won't be dissappointed.

We hope everyone is having a good week!  Time for us to take a nap :)
