Since Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, it got me to thinking about the things I have learned from my father. They are of course too numerous to mention. But, as I thought about them, I realized that many of the things I do in my life to be “greener” actually come from him.
While I have often teased that he may be a bit too extreme in some of his earth-friendly habits, I have certainly followed his example, right down to becoming a gardener, and finally giving up fast food.
I also seem to be going through a stage of sorting through my life and the things I have learned. This is evidenced by some of the things I have already written here in the past month, including the life lessons I have learned from gardening.
So, in keeping with the theme of green exploration, here are a few of the green life lessons that my father has taught me.
