It’s Earth Day!

Wondering how can we help heal our sweet little blue planet today (and every day)?

Here are a few ideas:

  • eat less (or no) meat
  • walk, don’t drive
  • turn the lights out
  • compost
  • recycle
  • fix broken things instead of throwing them out
  • shop less
  • hug/plant a tree

And, in honor of Earth Day, here is a recipe for a healthy, springy, green smoothie to sip on while contemplating how to be kinder and gentler towards mother nature…

1 cup ice
