Happy Earth Day Jet Setters! As travelers, let's be honest, we cause a lot of harm to the environment. I'll admit, I love jet setting on a plane and taking road trips, and so I certainly know that I do my fair share of damage to Mother Earth. So, on this Earth Day, I want to focus on what I am going to do in the year ahead to help the planet.
1- I bought a Brita! That's right, no more bottled water in my house. Yes, I would much rather go for a bottle of Poland Spring, but too many of us drink out of plastic bottles daily, and did you know that one bottle will sit in a landfill for at least 100 years before it starts to disintegrate? The entire recycling process is a joke because half of what's put into recycle bins is NOT recycled, and it takes so much energy for recycling projects to work. It's better to reduce than recycle.2- I am thinking about giving up my current car for a Toyota Prius. Yup, a hybrid folks!!! Yes, it's not as aesthetically pleasing as my current car or some other cars out there, but it's so much better for the environment. Plus, I'll save a ton of money on gas, and many celebrities have them, so how bad could they be? :-) So, on this Earth Day, think of ways you can help Mother Earth. I'm open to your suggestions...please, let me know what you think. Happy Earth Day!
