Let's All Go Out and Give the Earth a Great Big Hug...

I would like to say that I am a "green" person. By "green" I do not mean that I am sick, jealous or have some horrid skin condition, I am just saying that I feel like I do my best to help.

Sure, I do own a car, but this is my first car ever. I have done the whole public transit thing and I'm sure I will do it again in the future, but for now I do own a car. I did buy a car with good gas mileage, just the right size for my family and face it, it's cute as heck. Okay, I'm sorry that was inappropriate, I really am trying to be serious here!
I have bought (and continue to buy) those reusable shopping bags. The problem is I almost always forget them at home and usually when I do forget them I buy another one. It's actually a little embarrassing how many of these bags I have now. I absolutely hate plastic shopping bags.
And hey, I am constantly raking up the garbage my neighbour's guests throw into the bushes on my front yard. That's gotta count towards being green right?

Truth is, this whole end of the world stuff scares the crap outta me! Everything about global warming, the ozone layer, meteorites hitting earth and zombies scare me...badly! So does it bother me when I see a house without recyclables out in front? Heck ya!

I live in a crappy neighbourhood. I'm pretty sure a good part of my neighbourhood population are drug addicts/dealers/prostitutes. You can't tell me these people don't have recyclables to put out each week? How many times does a pothead smoke up and then open a can of Zoodles?? I'm betting quite a bit...where's your recycling bin Potty McPotPants??

This isn't something new either, I can remember my parents fighting when I was little. One time they were fighting over recycling. My mom was yelling about a can that was thrown in the garbage and I remember her saying "Don't you care about your children's futures?". That has always stuck with me for some reason (even though half the stuff that comes out of my mom's mouth is total BS - love you mom!).

So I guess what I'm trying to say with this is that if you don't care about the planet for yourself, at least care for the future of our children and their children, and their children's children etc etc...

Because you know what, there is so much beauty in this world

(eehhh...maybe not so much that, but you get the point right?)

Hello..this is my blog. I bought this fancy theme and I don't know what to write here just yet. Maybe one day remind me I have to write something inspiring here?
