A Few Small Steps for Earth Day

Make every day Earth Day by setting a green resolution! Here's some help to get you started:

Start an edible garden, as Michael Pollan urges you to do: "It’s one of the most powerful things an individual can do — to reduce your carbon footprint, sure, but more important, to reduce your sense of dependence and dividedness: to change the cheap-energy mind." Get outside to enjoy the warmer weather while creating your own veggie garden — and soon, you'll be reaping the fruit of your labors, literally! 

Ride public transit — to find love or at least a good story! De-car and have fun while you're at it, read: Steven Leigh Morris' hilarious account in LA Weekly of a recent memorable bus ride. Afterwards, you'll be inspired to get out of your lonely car and travel with fun company!
