Happy Earth Day!  Guess what?  We are killing our planet. 

Paper or Plastic?  Well, reusable hemp bags ideally, or canvas, etc.

This is a turtle who, as a baby, was caught in a plastic band from ocean trash. 
  • There our trash islands located in every ocean on our planet.
  • The one in the Pacific between California and Japan is so large it is twice the size of the state of Texas! 
  • Most of the trash is plastic. 
  • San Francisco just became the first major U.S. city to ban the use of plastic bags in major grocers/drugstores. :-D!
SFgate Article on the banning of plastic bags.

I am not the best example out there. I have my share of bad habits that I need to change, but I saw this photo of a turtle and other marine life that has been killed or deformed by our collective bad habits. My heart cries, my eyes teared up. I know this is going on, but I allow myself to forget, to get into those bad habits again.
Please Gaia!  Don't let me forget. I offered my service to this planet a long time ago, and I intend to keep it. I need to do more.
