Recycle your old boyfriend and girl friends- yea Earth Day

Recycle bags, bottles, and beaus. Who are the Real Heroes of Recycling? Today’s Top Three:

1. Fire and Light in Arcata recycles tons of old glass and fashions it into glorious rainbow colored plates, bowls, goblets, and candlesticks.

2. Whole Foods takes those villainous old plastic bags and recycles them into colorful, durable, use- for- a- lifetime shopping bags. Check out the leaps and bounds Whole Foods is making to keep the planet green.

3. Karyn, the social maven of Marin, throws an annual ‘Singles Romantic Recycle Earth Day Celebration’. She rolls out the green carpet; she conserves water and serves wine; she encourages everyone into the pool: arrive by carpool. Party favors are tiny redwoods seedlings. The colorful invitation, printed on recycled paper is printed with vegetable dye reads: BYOB – bring your old Boyfriend or Babe.

The Green Party

Party goers must come in couples. Women bring a man they like and they would like to introduce to other women. Perhaps they once dated and there was affection, but zero chemistry. Guys do the same. Bring a friend – make a friend. The way it works is: friends introduce friends and there is an underlying current of matchmaking and conviviality going on. This is the 5th year Karyn has organized the Romantic Recycling party. You can do the same. Your friends will be green. Invite them to a party and romantically recycle your friends.

Celebrate Earth and mirth.

Marin County has always been Green

It used to be, you couldn’t swing a cat in Marin without hitting a geodesic dome, a commune, a community garden, a hot tub replete with Peacock feathers or a yogurt maker. Times, they are a changing.

Now, everybody’s a little more subtle: a) no more swinging those cats, please and, b) everyone more discreet – composting is quiet.

Need a new Earth Day mantra? Go organic, change out light bulbs to CFLs; buy recycled, reuse; no plastic bottles. Conserve water – drink wine and, be sure to recycle your friends.
