Earth day, I guess

I’m not a very good environmentalist if I don’t know when Earth day is, am I? ^_^;; I even read this bit in the newspaper about how people argue over when the real earth day is, the first day of spring or … whatever tomorrow is.

I don’t know. I tend to advocate saving earth every day. (Of course, actually going outside and doing something about it … that’s another matter. *lazy and doesn’t like leaving the safe, very safe, house* >.>)

Anyway. The reason why I even started writing this post. hah. There’s this thing on Yahoo! (the stuff I liked):

Remove yourself from junk mail lists. Believe it or not, 100 million trees are felled each year to produce junk mail.

If every household replaced one lightbulb with a compact fluorescent bulb, it would be the equivalent of eliminating the pollution from 1 million cars.

Using appliances carrying the Energy Star can save the average family $400 per year in energy bills.

Carpool or take public transportation to work once a week, and walk or ride a bike for short trips. Don’t forget to celebrate Carfree Day.

If every plastic bottle were recycled, landfills would be 2 billion tons lighter. Reusable bottles and water filtration systems make an even bigger difference.

35 years of Earth Day, huh. (Yes, that would explain why I saw an ad on the Yahoo mainpage for the Toyota Prius … I need sleep. Badly.)
