You say it’s your Earth Day…


I consider myself to live a pretty ecologically kind life — I’m a vegetarian, I use and wear only vegan, non-animal-tested products, I don’t own a car, I use my own bag when shopping, etc. (I don’t mention these things to be preachy or self-righteous– just for illustrative purposes.) So you’d think I’d be a huge proponent of Earth Day–and in theory, I guess I am.  It’s just… shouldn’t we be aware of our impact every day? Do people who aren’t typically environmentally-focused observe the day? If they do, does it have a long-term impact on their behavior? I don’t mean for these questions to be rhetorical– I’m really curious. What are your thoughts and experiences regarding Earth Day?
