Earth Day

Earth Day is almost upon us (April 22nd).

Does Earth Day matter? Is it pointless? Is it just a "feel good" political opportunity?

According to the OC Register it's at least a paler shade of green this year and a cursory review of the comments is certainly distressing.

What should Earth Day be about?

To me, Earth Day is about trying to be more aware, appreciation, learn something new, having fun while doing something green, a time for renewal, a chance to commit to making a change.

If you are looking for a community event of some sort, here are a few ideas for Wednesday:

The Road Less Traveled store is going to have a "Creating Natural Spa Goodies" class.

At the Environmental Nature Center, there will be a "Little Naturalist" event for young children and a "Yoga In The Green" for kids 6-12, and later a lecture titled, "Endangered Around Us".

How about tasting some organic, biodynamic wines?! Check out Yves in Anaheim for a fun way to celebrate and learn at the same time.

Whole Foods in Tustin has various events throughout the day.

At the Honda Event Center the Insight will makes it debut with a chance to win one and other green activities.

What does Earth Day mean to you?

What are your plans?
