When was the last time someone told you "Thank You" for saving the Earth?
Yeah, me too.
So I figure it's my job to spread the love today, the day before Valentine's Day, which might otherwise be marred by chainsaws, facemasks, or other graphic horror movie paraphernalia. Here goes...
Thank you! for picking neither paper nor plastic, but permanent bags for your groceries and shopping. Thanks also for picking the mug (not the Styrofoam cup) and the glass (instead of the plastic water bottle).
Thank you! for buying CFL light bulbs and saving yourself a ton of money at the same time. Same goes for the Energy Star fridge and washer.
Thank you! for driving a sensible car, riding a bike, or reading on the way to work by taking the bus. Not to mention carpooling with the hypochondriac from Risk Management.
Thank you! for spending your time growing a garden of low-carbon emission, high-nutrition, supa-tasty veggies, herbs and fruit. Thank you for buying local, fair-trade, and organic. Triple bonus for occasionally going vegetarian!
Thank you! for caring enough to go the extra mile, take the eco-challenge, and riot for austerity. Thank you for loving the Earth and your children enough to inconvenience yourself to be green, pay extra for the organic product, or go out of your way to make the right choice.
I appreciate you, and I'm offering up this prize to prove it. Comment in below to enter in the drawing. The winner can choose from the Carbon Buster's Home Energy Handbook or Insulate and Weatherize: Expert Advice from Start to Finish.
I'll be announcing the lucky winner at the end of Monday. Happy early Valentine's Day!
