Today, I was most interested to see what green bloggers were going to say about Earth Day today, and it was pretty much what I expected – mixed emotions. We should be eco-conscious every day and many made that a point and I agree.
That is not to say that Earth Day is not a good thing, which no one argued. It is a great thing, it is a time that we can all come together in acknowledgement, to celebrate what we have been doing and what we can do to become more eco-conscious. It can also serve as a day of stark recognition of all that can go wrong if we do not act.
Of the many places at stake – the habitat of the polar bear Northern Manitoba Coast, Canada.
