Earth Day and Arbor Day happen the same week this year and these holidays always give me a lot to think about. Spring has sprung in Connecticut and I’ve been so happy clipping daffodils and tulips for our vases, watching the rose bushes begin to flutter back to life, and seeing the hosta spring from the garden beds. There is so much to celebrate and be grateful for! When I think of these Earth-centered holidays I am reminded how much I want to protect our Earth and it’s resources despite the fact that we are just one small family on this big planet. How can I make a difference when I am clearly incapable of planting a forest on my own, or abandoning driving a car forevermore?
I know I am not the only person who wonders this daily and today I am thrilled to share that our friends at Unilever have thought of a few solutions for us. Helping the planet can be as easy as going to Stop & Shop. Since I shop their regularly I was thrilled to participate in their Buy, Save, Plant program for Arbor Day 2017.
