Happy Earth Day all!
There are many reasons why I bike to work, but being good to the environment is a good one. I've road over 2500 kms on my bike and didn't use one drop of gasoline. Just a bit of lube to keep the chain going. I also know that's not enough. I should be recycling more then I currently do. That includes using disposable stuff like coffee cups from coffee shops. I really should be using my own. And I fly at least once a year, but with distances to so far, and having no car, it's the most reasonable way of getting around. Really, the Greyhound bus would be better, but who has 2-6 days to travel on a bus? We need high-speed train service! :) Hoping my bike use balances out the once a year plane trip.
I realize too, I don't use the dryer, but that's because of the crazy cost of using one in an apartment. So, I hang dry ALL my stuff.
Anyways...think this is a good day, but I think that everyone should think of every day as Earth day, not just this one day.
