GREEN is a multipurpose color, and lately it is the universal icon for a healthy Earth.
The concern we raise in this post is whether we have the collective will and conscience to change our destructive consumerist habits. Maybe we are not really capable of rising to the challenge of healing our planet.
Save the Earth strategies don’t really address the driver, our economic materialism — when the economy is bad, we must buy more stuff! Just be sure to recycle.
Professions of concern that skirt issues like planned obsolescence, are disingenuous as plastic grass. But no worries. Today we’re all about red ribbons and promises of rose gardens — yep, it’s Valentine’s Day! ♥
