BTT: Earth Day

This week's Booking Through Thursday asks:

It’s Earth Day … what are you reading? Are your reading habits changing for the sake of the environment? What are you doing for the sake of the planet today?

This is an interesting question. We are actually celebrating Earth Week here in SF because it's the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day and when it comes to anything to do with recycling we go big or go home. So no, my reading habits haven't changed for this week but at work we are watching movies about how we can reduce more, have a box on each floor where we can bring extra office supplies from our desks that we aren't using to re-use in the office supply room, and the best idea of all I think, tomorrow we are having a 'swap shop' where everyone can bring things from home that they don't want anymore (that they honestly think someone else will!) and in one of the conference rooms they are setting up a store for the swap. You get one ticket for everything you bring to purchase something else. Oh and I think tomorrow is also no paper day. Write on your hand people!

Happy Earth Week! Don't forget to recycle and compost! And harvest that rainwater! :)

  2. The office swap meet sounds like a great idea. Not sure I could get through the day without using at least a little writing paper, though - I have this thing about clean hands! Happy Earth Week!

  3. I totally believe in recycling, but my work took our trash cans out of our cubicles and replaced them with recycling bins. Which is fine, but then they sent us an email about things that aren't recyclable so we all have covert trash cans because who wants to walk down the hallway every 5 minutes to throw something away? It's ridiculous.

  4. Happy Earth Week!

    My reading habits haven't really changed, but I'm more aware of recycling old magazines now, so does that count? :)

    Love the idea of the office swap shop! Hope it was a success!
