In honor of St. Valentine’s Day and cupid’s arrow I want to put a plug in for seeing green instead of red. 

I’m reminded of a song by Peter Gabriel “In Your Eyes” and if you’ll allow me a bit of novelty let me take a few lines of the song and sing it to Mother Earth. 

 

“Love, I don't like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive.”

 

In essence, I’m broken hearted knowing how humans are treating the resources we have been given by the Earth.

So much time is wasted with weak politicians and uninspiring business solutions.

I feel so tired working to reduce my own carbon footprint but look around and see others “spending” with impunity. 

I look to the future and see only devastation for my children and yours. 

 

So if you love the Earth think of the future.  Change one habit……buy local, drop the straw, reduce plastic use, buy green products (like what we sell), switch to a bamboo toothbrush, and drive less.  Make your cupid arrows shoot green instead of red.
