Eric Warner, Flying Dog’s “Lead Dog” wrote a great blog entry today about Earth Day, and how people should celebrate the Earth every day by making some simple lifestyle changes. Instead of taking the bus to work one day a year, people can affect change in simple ways. Here’s something I’ve changed in my life’s routine to help out this place we call home:
Recycling – I recycle aluminum, glass, plastic and paper. The shitty thing about this is that my condo building doesn’t offer recycling, so I have to schlep my recycling offsite. The city of Denver offers free curbside recycling, but only in single-family homes and apartment buildings that are 8 units or less. I think this is total bullshit, and the city needs to look at a more inclusive recycling plan. But I wait until I can completely fill up my car with cans and bottles and paper (working at a beer company, I have been getting lots more glass to recycle the last 18 months). I recycle my shit near my brother’s house, so I go play with my nephews afterwards.
