What Earth Day means to me

April 22, 2011

Happy Earth Day. 

But what is Earth Day?  To me it is about responsibility and stewardship.  And at the end of the day, leaving a world that is at least hospitable, and preferably much more than that, for my children, and my grandchildren should I someday be so blessed.

We have the ability, and the responsibility, to help things go well.  As individuals and as societies, we can get in hint of this by looking at the consequences of actions are ancestors took—or didn’t take.  And rest assured that our actions—and inactions—will effect generations to come.

Making smart energy decisions fits right in.  Not only does energy-efficiency help the environment—something which is intrinsically good in its own right, but it also saves money and makes us more secure.  It’s why I do what I do, working with a company that makes people’s home more energy-efficient.  And safer and more comfortable.

Responsibility.  With compelling benefits to boot.

What does Earth Day mean to you?
