Earth Day

josh-keyes-deer-sidewalk1

Today is Earth Day, the one day a year elementary school kids are made to show their “green-ness” through poster competitions. You can show your support for Mother Earth in whatever way you please now that you’ve surpassed a 4th grade education. Maybe ride a bike, sing with the birds, or actually throw something in your recycling bin? To help get you in the mood, I’ve put together a little playlist of bands/songs who’s titles at least are directly inspired by all things natural. And if you’re interested in making every day Earth Day, Mr. Father Earth himself, Robert Redford, tells you how… Making Every Day Earth Day (Huffington Post)
