A short perspective on Earth Day + consumerism

This past year has made me think a lot about what I am FOR, rather than what I am against. Earth Day edition of what I am FOR:

-stewarding natural resources
triple bottom lines (people, profit, planet)
-free market choice
-informed consumers who participate in free market choice

The most effective way that I can celebrate Earth Day is by making everyday consumption choices that reflect what I am FOR.  I can vote with my dollar, purchasing from companies that source products sustainably, OR I can even buy thrift – the ultimate consumer recycling.

There’s more on this subject, others have written entire books.  I told you mine would be short!

What are you FOR this Earth Day?
