There is much talk about "mother earth," being "green," and preserving our environment.
Use better light bulbs. Turn off the lights early. Turn off the TV. Turn off the computer. Drive less.
Going out to eat means using more resources (which already exist at home), especially fast food restaurants with disposable products. Entertainment means more driving and more electricity usage.
In fact, working around the house every day--yard work, car work, basement repair--all use energy.
What if we, as a nation, decided to take a day off from all this energy consumption and disposable waste. An entire day could be "green" and make everybody feel better (both from the liberal guilt and from work in general).
If it got popular enough, it could be a weekly "green" day.
One day in seven.
