Calling all APLS

So the deadline for the APLS carnival is April 20th. Obviously I'm on vacation and haven't written my post yet. So I'm extending the deadline. Get it in by April 22nd by 10 am Pacific Time to be included in the carnival.


Here's the topic information again:

Is Earth Day relevant?
As Earth Day approaches, I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I feel like it's good to have one day a year where the focus is on the environment. Earth Day may build awareness in people, and it might give some people enough pause to significantly alter their lives. On the other hand, shouldn't every day be Earth Day? Many argue that Earth Day allows people to feel good about recycling their aluminum cans, driving their Toyota Prius, and bringing their own bags, when the truth is those actions barely scrape the surface in terms of what might be necessary to combat the forthcoming environmental crises. What do you think?

I have a post in the works!!!

I just left a hugely long comment on my friend Green Mamma's blog about how to teach children about "going green" and then I realized with a little tweaking it would be perfect for the Earth Day topic this month. Whew!

Enjoy the rest of your vacay!
