So while I was giving out candy to all the mini superheroes yesterday, I had a fleeting thought about all the real-life superheroes among us who work so hard everyday to rescue this earth from our bad habits. I tell myself that all my small efforts to waste less will make a difference, but I also know that I'm relying on someone else to make changes on a larger scale. We are all relying on those among us who research and re-invent... and organize communities... and influence large corporations... and motivate governments...
So thank you to the person who invented biodegradable disposable plates. Thank you to the recycling plants. Thank you to the people writing letters and organizing petitions to change regulations. Thank you to the grocery stores who no longer use plastic bags. Thank you to the workplaces that replaced all the styrofoam cups with real mugs.
Thank you to all the superheroes among us!
Give. Love. Go green.
