Earth Day 2009

earthday I read an article in today’s paper about the relevance of Earth Day – “has it outlived its usefulness and potentially become more of a feel-good token symbol…”,  and was thinking  about this as I approached the beach path for my morning walk.

Unfortunately, it didn’t take me long to mentally draft this post after spotting the deflated balloon stuck on the snow fence. 

In my quick walk, I picked up 5 or 6 balloons, a beer can, a plastic cup and jug, and a potato chip bag.  That was all I could carry- so I stopped there.

If Earth Day is an opportunity to remind all of us about the environment- then it has value.  If it inspires me to pick up trash along the beach- then it has value.  Hope you are equally inspired today!
