Earth Day!!

Today is Earth Day!!! The day to be aware of the environment and maybe make some choices to "Go Green" and protect our earth.
If it was up to my husband, we would be a "Go Green Family." He already has us recycling everything imaginable. There are various trash cans in the garage, all nicely labeled plastic, glass, cardboard, etc. He even has it broken down into the different types of plastic. I thought plastic was plastic....NOT SO!!! Anyway, I am proud of him for being so environmentally aware and I am getting better with recycling. It has drastically decreased the amount of "trash" we throw out.
I received an interesting email and have also run across the same information on different websites. Just thought I would post some of the info I read.
The following gas companies IMPORT gas from the Middle East:
Shell, Chevron/Texaco, Exxon/Mobil, Speedway and Amoco.
These DO NOT IMPORT from overseas:
Sunoco, Conoco, Sinclair, BP/Phillips
All of this info is available at the Dept of Energy website!
Happy Earth Day

I know exactly what you mean....my husband is a recycling fanatic, too! And although a few years ago, I thought he was nuts to go through all the hassle, he's now won me over to his "green" side as well! I think it can be overwhelming to "go green" all at once, it's just making small subtle changes in our daily lives that make it easier to swallow!
