Earth to... yeah, you know

Earth to you! April 22 is Earth Day's 40th birthday, people! So go out there and do something awesome for the environment, m'kay? Plant a tree, or a seed, or recycle a whole bunch of stuff, or donate your old stuff somewhere, or buy some organic what-not... you get the picture. In the past, I've listed some detailed green-er suggestions, but I think we've all heard enough of the "turn the faucet off when you're brushing your teeth" mumbo jumbo. We know going eco is truly a lifestyle, though all of those smart little habits certainly add up. So don't stop! Do one green thing greener, and we'll all help the green movement keep... ah, moving. :)

Oh, I've got some news. It's happened in a blink, but I started a new job this week (and at an environmental agency, natch). It's full-time, so that means I've got less blogging and writing time in general, but now I can pay some big bills and start my run-away-to-Paris-fund (oh, wouldn't it be nice? Le sigh). I still have grandiose evil plans to one day work as a full-time writer (novelist, fingers crossed), so this is but a stepping stone to achieving a bigger goal. One day, perhaps, I will have achieved Carrie Bradshaw-ness, then, and only then, will I rest!


Um. Anyway.

So... photos! These were taken a few weeks ago following Boston's Down to Earth Sustainable Living Expo (lovingly called "d2e"). I reported on it for Green Cotton, but these are just my personal pics taken in the Boston Commons on what turned out to be a very green day, indeed.

Oh, and by the way, I happened to be wearing an organic/eco-friendly dress... this is made from organic cotton and bamboo!

Roberta Oaks "Rudi" dress, Jute & Jackfruit
Apt. 9 lace tights, Kohl's
Pewter PVC ballet flats, Old Navy
Olive sunglasses, Loft

Go forth and be green! Peace.

I'm so happy about the news on the job front! I can't wait to talk. Soon soon!

Lovin' that dress. The pattern is so fun.

Hehe, nice squirrel shot. Remember squirrel-sighting in the Commons a few years ago? Let's do that again :)

Loved the pics!

PS I totally meant to tell you that when I was in Salem, I found a store selling fairy dust and immediately thought of you. Salem fairies forever!

PPS And now I sound lame, so I might as well admit that I celebrated Earth Day by recycling and watching Captain Planet online.

Yay! For Earth Day. I'm loving your outfit and that pic with the Willow tree is just gorgeous. =)
