“Hug” wildlife… (so we don’t kiss it goodbye).

We all just concentrated on raising awareness of global warming during Earth Hour, and one of the topics that came up that night was the plight of the polar bear. THIS did not make our daughter happy.

polar-bears1Our daughter’s beloved polar bear may actually become extinct during her lifetime.  (If you want your heart crushed, take a moment to watch this.)  And there are 10 others that top the list of animals that WILL become extinct in ours.  Can you even imagine these animals completely fading from existence?

Two organizations I love are WWF and National Wildlife Federation.wwf

Since 1961, WWF has been working to save endangered species and protect their habitats – polar bears, orangutans and tigers top the list.  (Well, that certainly covers some of my family’s favorites.)

And for over 80 years, National Wildlife Federation’s mission has been to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future.  (And isn’t that what we all want?)

Both of these organizations do an amazing job of working tirelessly to protect and preserve nature and animals through education, advocacy and action, and (despite recently commenting about an nwfabundance of mail from NWF!) I whole-heartedly support both of them.  They are also great resources for information, ideas and ways to get your family involved… and for our children, this is so crucial.

In fact, the next time you need to give a gift, consider shopping their stores – “adopt” an animal, “plant a tree”, buy a magazine subscription – or simply consider donating to their cause. We all have a long list of people who “have everything”, so next time make the gift truly meaningful.

Our daughter was so inspired to help save her beloved polar bears that she wants to donate some of her own money.  And I’m absolutely going to let her.

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!
