So for Earth Day we planted a tree (a Satsuma Mandarin) and a rose (Peace). We went to the library (rather than buying new books) and shopped for organic groceries. We had planned to take our plastic grocery bags back for recycling but had a minor issue with the vehicle (not driving would have been even more environmentally friendly, but I had a mystery shop at the grocery store which was too far away for walking) and ended up having to leave it at the library while we walked home and got the other car (it was just a battery malfunction, I'm happy to report it is now running fine).
