In Honor of Earth Day...Meet the Greenest Black Man on The Planet

I don't know about you but I worry so much about what we're doing to this planet. But I'm also still eating take-out from plastic containers and I enjoy long hot showers and Tide laundry detergent.

I recycle but I could do better. That's why it inspires me so much when I hear about amazing people like Will Allen. He's the man that is going to help the rest of us figure out how to really live off the land without exploiting the land. His vision and his work is amazing.

Check out his organization Growing Power, which happens to be in my hometown of Milwaukee, and tell me you're not inspired.

Not go out and plant something for Mother Earth.


p.s. I know Earth Day was yesterday...

I actually did plant trees today in celebration of Earth Day. My school got a grant for 300 trees which we planted today. I'm tired as all get out, but I felt satisfied after it was over.
