Okay. Not only is it Earth Day, but it’s the 40th Earth Day. So Earth Day is officially over the hill, right? Yes. I’m less obsessed with how old Earth Day is and more inclined to obsess over the new Oceans movie by Disney. No; they aren’t paying me…yet. Anyway. In an effort to promote the earth and conservation and all that, I’ve looked to the Environmental Protection Agency and committed to five actions to reduce my personal assault on the environment. You can pick your actions here, but these are my five.

Action 1: Dispose of solid and liquid wastes and medications safely. You have no idea how many times I’ve dropped my non-name brand acetaminophen down the sink. I need to be more careful about that.

Action 2: Plant a tree. Or plant many trees! Does throwing avocado pits in my backyard count? What about acorns?

Action 3: Learn about composting, try it out! Apparently it does; I’m definitely going to keep throwing acorns and avocado pits in the backyard.

Action 4: Reduce. Cut back on the amount of “stuff” that could later end up as waste.This, clearly, does not reference shoes.

Action 5: Share your commitment on social networking sites. Done and done.

Now that I’m officially environmentally friendly and socially conscious, I guess the only thing left for me to do is ask for world peace, right? As I wait for that last one, I have to get ready to celebrate Earth Day at ShoeDazzle’s first company birthday bash. It’s on a boat; and, as I mentioned, I love oceans. Happy Earth Day!
