I had no idea it was Earth Day today....until I went outside my house.
There was a radio ad about Earth Day, Pottery Barn had Earth Day signs and sales on organic items, Caribou Coffee had Earth Day specials, Southdale Hospital cafeteria was decorated with Earth day signs and even had large plastic neon water bottles for sale to encourage drinking more water- because I guess it's natural. There were "factoids" up on the walls that somebody had made and put up like an elementary school classroom.
This holiday is almost as big as Halloween. Who knew? I think I remember Earth Day in college-we certainly never talked about it at Lakeville public schools. I wonder what public schools all over the state are doing today to commemorate this important day. Do you think Mother Earth gets sad if you forget her Earth-day? Argh, ha, ha.
