I've read and heard several times lately about how even little changes make a difference, but sometimes my little changes seem so little. But when I thought about today's to-do list, I realized these little changes will take up a good part of the day, which isn't so little.
First, drop off soil from our yard to be tested -- to grow my own pesticide free veggies and improve our newly chemical-free lawn. Deliver winter coats to the green earth cleaners. Recycle e-wastes--dust buster with missing parts, torn up extension cords, satellite box-- at the city facility. Go online and buy more biodegradable bags for dog duty. And I looked down at the dining room floor at our newest arrival, a custom rug made from recycled PET plastic, surprisingly soft and plush.
So, just in time for Earth Day, I feel like maybe my little changes have added up to something a little significant. But there's always more we can do.
