Of course, I was just a kid at the time, but it seems to me that environmentalists made the very savvy decision to market eco-awareness to the children of the 70s (like me). I like to think that the "Crying Indian" had a lot to do with it. But when I think of the rise of environmentalism in the 1970s, I also remember that I just couldn't get that Woodsy The Owl song out of my head! I honestly remember hearing that song while I picked up trash on my school playground!
Today my kids consider "reduce, reuse, recycle" a part of their daily lives. San Diego's beaches are cleaner than they ever were in my childhood and anyone throwing their In-and-Out wrapper out of the car window will probably be reported and have to pay a hefty fine.
Isn't it amazing the changes we've been able to make in such a short time? Just think of the improvements we can make before our kids are grown!
So this Sunday, let's all come up with more ways to Help Keep Americaaaaaaa....Looking Good! Hoot! Hoot!
Wishing you a HAPPY EARTH DAY with extra cheese-
