Happy Earth Day



I can honestly say that 2009 has been the first year (I know-I've been lazy and clueless) that I'm beginning to understand the real meaning of why we should not only Reduce, Reuse and Recycle but eat green, groom green and plant more green...the more I watch shows on Discovery channel and its various sister channels like DIY, HGTV and Planet Green, it's a wonder that we still have places to travel to. The places that aren't in our backyard are suffering. Our wildlife (in areas other than North America) are definitely suffering.....many species on the verge of extinction. I know going more green costs money and I truly hate the more energy efficient light bulbs, but I'm trying.

We can all make a difference even if we only do small things to save this planet. I've only taken about 5 or 6 baby steps but I believe they do help.
Some fantastic websites that I frequent are:

http://planetgreen.discovery.com/ and http://www.care2.com/ (love this site) and http://www.freecycle.org/ and your local recs & parks websites (for composting and local recycling tips & programs.)

and oh, so silly me, how could I forget http://www.etsy.com/ ??????
