Celebrating Earth Day
GUEST POST by Marsha Collier, Ebay guru– author of 15 “For Dummies” Books about Ebay
With Earth Day approaching , I decided that this year I wouldn’t be left out. Since I was at the very first Earth Day in Central Park, the day meant a lot to me (from what I can remember, since I was obviously so very young).). I went to look for my commemorative T-shirt for the day, and couldn’t find it. (It had obviously dissolved– as real antique T-shirts do).
But I did find a mint condition – never worn– 20th anniversary pink Earth Day T-shirt! What a treasure! My daughter and I bought it in Washington DC during a trip in 1990. I folded it up and put it away.
Since all I want is my old, old t-shirt, this new (19 year old) pretender will never do. Darryle, I hope one of your green, earth friendly readers will see the value in this shirt.
(T-shirt, size Large)
Note: Marsha and I went to high school together. So I’m a little confused, Marsha, to hear you attended the first Earth Day. 1970? How is that possible? By my calculations, that would make both of us much older than we look or feel. So if you really were at that first Earth Day event in Central Park, you must have been watching from your stroller. LOL And thank you for this “vintage” collector’s item!
