It's great to be here with you again! We're going to begin a two-week long series today in honor of Earth Day, which is coming next week on the 22nd of April. For this series, we've prepared a special set of greetings that match the spirit of this important day. We'll be giving you one idea each day about how to live in a way that is gentle on the planet. Hopefully you'll find one or two that you've never thought of before. Enjoy these, and try them out if you can!
