How are you celebrating Earth Day?

Today is Earth Day. What are you doing to honor our planet?

I’m a vegan who uses almost exclusively natural products and recycles every damn thing in her apartment. Everything, even, like, cereal boxes or any packaging food comes in at the grocery store. I read the ingredients of everything I buy and try not to buy grocery items with, say, palm oil, in them because to get that oil, we’ve got to chop down trees, the habitat for many other animals including endangered orangutans.

So obviously I give a shit about Earth Day and wish people thought about this kind of thing every day.

What do you do? Today and everyday. What do you now and what are your goals?

I really want to know. It’s not a rhetorical question. Go ahead, brag. Or confess, as the case may be.

Flaming Lips headline Earth Day concert in D.C.

So we’re having ourselves a big shindig Sunday on the Mall grounds here in D.C. in honor of Earth Day. It’s called the Green Apple Music Festival.

Guess who’s coming to play a free concert? Guess!

The Flaming Lips:

True story: Flaming Lips leader Wayne Coyne and I once stayed in the same Ramada Inn during the South By Southwest music conference in Austin, Texas. It was weird going downstairs to the lobby each morning and seeing Wayne in his little suit.

The Green Apple Music festival happens Sunday in select cities nationwide with dozens of musical guests participating. Check the site to see if it will hit your town.

Earth Day is actually on April 22, so you have time to get your (environmentally friendly) party planned.

Do any of you take notice of Earth Day each year?
