Happy Earth Day

I'm celebrating Earth Day buried in 30 lbs of papers to grade. I feel a little guilty, as it would not be too difficult for me to have a mostly paperless classroom. The problem with that is that I can't read from the computer screen for hours on end. I feel like I'm going blind from my computer usage as it is. Can get some bonus points reading the writing of a recycled pencil on recycled paper? That's hard on my eyes, too.

Here's a Ecological Footprint Quiz to see just how earth-friendly YOU are. My score of a 12 is here. I took the quiz a year ago and received a higher score, so somehow I'm making less of an impact on my world now. I'm still a resource hog, though.

Another thing to think about in life.
