Earth Day 2011





It’s Earth Day and what does that mean? Well it is a day meant to inspire and make us appreciate our environment.

Earth day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970 and went international in 1990.

So what can you do?

· Avoid buying bottled water and buy a reusable water bottle to refill from home
· Turn off the lights when you leave a room
· Recycle
· Carpool
· Start a compost in your backyard
· Lower your thermostat
· Ride a bike to work
· Utilize your public library instead of buying books
· Reuse plastic grocery sacks for trash can liners and/or doggie and litterbox poop bags
· Bring your own bags to the grocery store
· Do full loads of laundry
· Take a shower instead of a bath
· Run your dishwasher only when it is full

Thank you for this info. Definitely trying to live my life this way.
From the Philippines and heard that when the flood took place, people finally realized how important it was to start trying to be green.
Please share with our friends at voiceboks.com. We'd love to see you there!
Sincerely,
