It's the 4th of July -- on 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!
