Top Ten Earth Day Actions: #4 Buy Less.

Over-consumption, of resources, products, and everything else, is the foundation environmental harm.  More stuff is always more stuff, whether it's a green soy-based plush penguin teaching environmental lessons to kids or just another CD.

“This ridiculous perverted marketing has cheapened the concept of what is really green,” said Denis Hayes, who was national coordinator of the first Earth Day and is returning to organize this year’s activities in Washington. “It is tragic.”

So, this Earth Day, take a little less.
