Money, money, money. Shoot, I would do a lot of things for money. It looks like ToysR US had the same idea when they introduced a line of “eco-friendly toys.” Coincidentally, this line will hit stores on Earth Day! For some reason, that just made me laugh. Of course they would release the line on Earth Day! It does seem somewhat strange that businesses are jumping on the bandwagon of green things and whatnot and millions of dollars are being made off of this movement. However, my thinking is that any type of reference to helping the environment is good. I have to admit that I have never been that into doing anything “green.” However, with the help from various media outlets and celebrities endorsing going green, I have become more aware of what I can do to help the environment. Everywhere I turn, I feel like I am faced with some type of ad, commercial, campaign, or what have you about the environment. Because of all these things, I am now aware of the environment and I cannot ignore it. I am curious if the green movement is merely a trend, or if people will be more environmentally friendly long-term. I’m thinking that maybe this needs to start out as a trend to start making people aware and then gradually people will start actively participating in the green movement. I feel like this is the way that I will be successful in doing my “green” part.
