My son showed me this morning the flowers that are already starting to pop out of the ground. It feels too early in the season for flowers to bloom, but our winter was so mild that I’m sure the plants are completely mixed up. So are the birds for that matter. They’ve been chirping since February.
This week was filled with excitement on the Groovy Green Livin home front.
Tide petition takes off
At last count the petition asking Tide to remove a cancer causing chemical from its Tide Free & Gentle® laundry detergent was up to 72,000! That’s incredible in my book of incredible. The petition also made a guest appearance on CNN iReport. Hopefully Procter & Gamble (the makers of Tide) will listen to our plea.
I had a lot of fun talking with a few of my favorite grandmas about their take on clean air. My mother, Lynn from Celebrate Green, Linda from Citizen Green, and Sheila offered up their hopes and dreams for their grandchildren in my post for Moms Clean Air Force.
Childhood asthma on the rise
The Huffington Post wrote a fantastic piece on childhood asthma. I couldn’t agree more with what Sylvia Brandt said in the article:
“Any person who would say that the EPA should be eliminated or its ability to regulate reduced, should have to sit in the emergency room holding the hand of a child who can’t breathe.”
I’m also quoted in the piece talking about my son’s asthma. See if you can find me.
