The Un-Earth Day

I'm just going to come out and say this... I am sick of hearing about Earth Day. Yes, I don't think people should throw their trash in the street but I am really sick of hearing about going green. It is a bandwagon that I don't want to jump on.

I do a lot of things that I suppose help the environment but I do them because I am cheap. I use rags instead of paper towels for most things, I use a vinegar/water homemade cleaner when I clean things the kids touch, I recycle (I don't want to have to buy the town trash bags- $1.5 a bag, are you kidding me!), I reuse fabric to make new things, I donate old clothes instead of trashing them, I don't drive a lot (pure laziness- I like to stay home) and I use reusable grocery bags (can you say .05 credit at Stop and Shop and Target.

I love the Earth because it's my home but lets stop being so PC. If you are truly into Earth Day that's great- people should have things they believe in. If you are into Earth Day and posting about it because you think it is what people want to hear then yikes.

  1. Amen Sister! I too only recycle, compost, use rags, etc. etc. because I'm cheap! Helping the Earth is just an extra bonus I suppose.
