Counting Down to Earth Day 2013

On April 22 it will be 43 years since the very first Earth Day was observed.

Planet Earth has changed a great deal since 1970.

The world seems smaller thanks to the internet, cell phones, and jet planes.
On the plus side:
But there is still much work to do, at home, and all over the world.

My good friend Henry Dynia, the Director of Design and Construction at Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven, recently posted a blog entry titled: Earth Day? Why Bother? Henry wrote, “Although the impact of our choices may be tiny in relation to the problems, it is important to take advantage of the choices that are available to us to reduce our personal impacts. One by one, those impacts and better choices will add up to make a difference…”

As we count down to Earth Day 2013, I invite each of you to take one step a day to make the world a better place 

Repurpose something old instead of buying something new.

Can you guess what these elegant candlesticks once were? 
Come back tomorrow to learn their story.

Love Your Mother (Earth). Pass it on. Together we can make a difference. Yes, we can!
