|This is why|
As I stood in the basement folding a seemingly endless pile of freshly laundered cloth napkins, I thought, If you'd just stop being so darned green, you would've used paper napkins and thrown them away and you wouldn't have to be spending your valuable time doing this. I was having a little green pity party. After all, company was coming in a few hours and I had a long list of tasks to accomplish. Folding napkins was simply holding me up.
But then another thought entered my mind. You're doing this for Lincoln. You're doing this for Laura. Suddenly, I found myself folding with a renewed passion as a I chanted my new mantra: You're doing this for Lincoln. You're doing this for Laura.
So that's today's challenge for you. When tempted to opt for less green ways, chant the mantra, inserting the names of the children you love and renew your commitment to leave behind a better earth for the next generations. Whether it's switching to cloth napkins, rags, sanitary products, or diapers, or turning off lights, televisions, or electronics when not in use, conscientiously decide to live a more earth-friendly, therefore child-friendly life.
It's up to you. It's up to me. Small drops in the bucket really do add up. Are you filling yours, or draining it dry?
Keeping it green,
