If there is one thing that we all have in common, it's that we share this planet with one another.
Today is Earth Day 2012. It's a global "holiday" celebrated all over the world by people who are concerned about our planet.
One thing I have found in my own life about becoming more environmentally aware is this: you have to start somewhere. If you don't recycle, start today. Make it fun by getting the kids involved! Another good place to start is by using energy efficient lightbulbs in your home. Or simply unplug appliances in your home when you aren't using them. Also, your local power company may offer a program (ours does) where they come out to your home (free of charge) and offer you energy saving tips and an inspection to see where you can make improvements.
