Everybody is talking about the green movement, it seems it has become stylish to go eco friendly. And why should it not be? The truth is, it is cool to care about our planet. Some people will argue and say, "what difference does it make if I recycle. I am just one person, my neighbors next door never recycle"?. Well it does make a difference, the power of the individual is not to be forgotten. You have to imagine the effect of watching a pebble drop into a pool of water, the impact may be small, but the ripples reach the outer surface.
Every time you say no thank you to a plastic bag for one item that you can carry home or shove in your purse, do it. Eventually the the cashier will ask "do you need a bag"? , instead of assuming you do. One person at a time, we can change the world! We can do it! One of the most fabulous products I have seen yet, that represents all of the above is a company, that sells toothbrushes made of recycled yogurt cups. And it does not stop there, not only are they shaped with a curve that makes cleaning your back teeth so easy and enjoyable, you look forward to brushing your teeth, but you can send the toothbrush back to the company when you are done using it, and they will reuse it. I have so far found these awesome toothbrushes at Trader Joe's and at Wholefoods. Sometimes they even come with a sleeve that functions as a return envelope, addressed to the company, no postage needed. I say let's support that!
