Has anyone heard of “The Lazy Environmentalist”? He’s this author turned TV show host who shows people how to go green by making changes as integrated and easy changes as possible. Before this summer I think I was falling into a lazy environmentalist category: I recycled, changed my light bulbs, and rode my bike often, but I stopped making changes and came to a stand-still. Now that I’m up to my eyeballs in environmental information, I’m once again becoming cognizant of how to become greener.
Something I’ve noticed that I’m really excited about is how our communities are embracing the green movement. I’m specifically talking about Sportsprint’s home (Ferguson), but it also applies to other towns and communities. One example is The Healthy Planet, a green St. Louis magazine (it’s tagline: Please Read —Then Recycle), which provides articles on going green/green events in St. Louis. Even though it seems small, a local coffee shop now has a recycling bin, as it just started recycling this summer. It’s kind of strange how psyched I was to see their recycling bin, but it’s exciting to see changes, however small, on so many levels.
Here’s more information about The Healthy Planet:
Also, here’s the link to Ideal Bite, a daily green tip email list I’m on. Today I learned about becoming a vegetarian. Fun fact: apparently Hank Aaron and Dennis Rodman are vegetarians.
