“What do you mean, Abby?”
“Somebody littered,” she said, pointing at a piece of trash blowing across the concrete.
This wasn’t an Earth Day crackdown. Abby always comments when she spots trash from her car seat perch. She’s only 4, but she gets that it’s not cool to be 45 and chucking a tissue or whole bag of McDonald’s trash out the window on the highway. Unfortunately, we’ve seen people do this and I’m sorry that it happens, but I do find Abby’s response and her 3-year-old sister’s collective anger about littering refreshing. If preschoolers are concerned about the Earth, I think there’s hope for us yet.
In honor of Earth Day, I want to make sure you all know that the nice folks at Interweave Press are letting us check out digital editions of the Quilting Arts April/May issue and the Cloth Paper Scissors May/June issue for free until April 29. Click this link for some paperless inspiration. What a great Earth Day promo.
