It’s the 4th of July – one of my favorite holidays! So how can we make the 4th of July red, white, blue, and green? Sure, you could forgo the home fireworks, serve organic food, and use re-useable plates and silverware. But here’s what I suggest for a REALLY patriotic 4th:
- choose an environmental issue that’s near and dear to your heart
- find a 15 minute slot of time
- write a letter or e-mail to your local, state, or federal representative, telling them your opinion about the environmental issue
- head out and enjoy the festivities, knowing you’ve participated in a truly patriotic 4th of July!
Have a fun and green 4th of July!
