I really enjoyed reading about Earth Day. I always assumed it was something that had been going on for longer than 40 years but really it is relativity new. I think what would help improve the environment most is treating every day like Earth Day. Doing the simple things helps, such as turning electronics and lights off when you are not using them and composting. Recently I learned about these cups made of corn that compost! I'm going to start searching for more compostable dishes when I have a party.
