I got this email from a friend Tuesday:
"I was channelling you yesterday when I retrieved a big Styrofoam box and lid
from (a colleague)'s garbage and trotted it back to the recycling table."
Reading this note from my friend made me really happy, but the best part is that people send me notes like this all the time. I often hear "you'd be proud of me!" and then the person tells me what they've done to recycle or reduce waste or buy responsibly. The mindset is spreading, and that just brightens my day.
