40 Years of Earth Day

Happy Anniversary, my fellow tree-hugging hippies!

I may even skip my shower today and conserve a bit of water.  Then again I skipped my shower yesterday so I’m rapidly approaching oil-spill levels of grease.  I’ll pack my lunch instead.

I’ve only been replacing my cleaning products with home made concoctions for about a year, but I’m continually amazed by how well they work and how little they cost.  Just mix up equal parts vinegar and water, then add a few drops of some castile soap.  It works beautifully on windows AND counter tops.  Did your cat crawl onto the counter and roll around on the spilled margarita mixer that you forgot to wipe up after the fourteenth round and now your counter looks like the back of Robin Williams’ neck?  Convinced a little vinegar won’t cut it?  Shake on a little baking soda and wipe away all evidence of your debauchery.

Divine Caroline has a nice article today on other ways to use vinegar (insert douche joke here – no don’t – the words “insert” and “douche” in the same sentence make me uncomfortable).  Just in case you’re in a saving the planet mood.  Which you should be.  Like every day.  Because I said so.  I can be a pushy bitch.  Don’t make me.

Don’t worry, I’ll yell at you on the 41st anniversary of Earth Day, too.

  2. Great video, very creative! I would say “Earth Day blessings to you” but I’m afraid that sounds a little too serious and earnest for your blog style. Oh, I know! “Earth Day blessings to you, beyotch!” Yeah, that’s more like it.
