Saving the world, one purchase at a time?

Earth Day has me a bit cynical, I have to admit. The last several years in particular, it's gotten just as commercial as every other holiday or event.

Free Starbucks in a reusable cup. Free green tags or grocery bags with the stores' name on it. And a hundred pitches from folks wanting you to promote their green business just because it's Earth Day.

Sorry, I don't buy that.

I don't see a need to mark Earth Day simply because I'm trying to make positive choices the other 364 days of the year as well.

Besides, there's a little something else going on Friday. Called Good Friday. Maybe instead of purchases, we need to get our priorities set.
