4 Days Until Earth Day

Want more information on how to help the Earth Go on Over to The Earth Day website. This is a wonderful website with everything you need to have a great Earth Day.

Need to find something to do? Just put in your location and see what is going on around you.

Nothing Close By? Click on Earth Day in a box and get something going.

You can even read up on the history of Earth Day and calculate you ecological footprint. Mine.....

Well apparently if everyone lived like me it would take 3.2 Earths to support us all. Unfortunately a lot of that I can't change since I'm renting a home at the moment. The suggestions it gave me was things like installing solar panels. It also didn't include things like how much do you walk or whether your home is new or old. Which I think makes a difference. If everyone went out and build a nice new green home from scratch... sure they are using Ecologically friendly materials but they are still wasting open land and resources. Where as the home I'm in now has been around for at least 50 years and though I personally can't fix it up since its not mine. If you buy an old home and make it more earth friendly isn't that recycling?

Anyway I'm digressing LOL It's a great site to visit to get you ready for Earth Day.

Maybe if we all work at it we can make every day Earth Day.
Here's the web address or just click the pic above for a quick link:
