My Problem With Earth Day

Why is it that the people who support Earth Day more than the others waste so much paper promoting the day?

Does it not go against what the day is intended for?

I look around my school and community and see posters, papers, flyers, etc. and to what avail? Do these things really help promote the day? In my mind they are wasting materials to promote an event where most will not do anything to help Earth.

Instead of printing posters and pictures, why don't we take the kids outside and plant a tree, do some cleaning up, make them appreciate what we have.

I don't know. Maybe it has been a long week, but for some reason this just bothered me all week.

Happy Earth Day tomorrow.

Make the world better, but don't waste paper promoting it.
