"You’re Welcome, Earth"


Yesterday my sister returned from work with a “gift” for me. “Look what I got you!” She exclaimed, while holding a trash bag full of paper. “I recycled for you!”. This bothered me a bit. No, a lot. This has not been the first time that someone has offered me a “present” by recycling. Why does this bother me so much? Because you shouldn’t be recycling or picking up trash for me, you should be doing it because it is taking care of the earth that God gave us. I feel like that’s how a lot of people look at the “green movement” – like they are doing someone a favor, when really it should be looked on as our duty since God put us in charge of this planet.
