40th Anniversary of Earth Day… (20 ways to) do something!

This Thursday, April 22, 2010, marks the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day! Created in 1970, it is a way to remind us to appreciate nature and this amazing planet we live on, and learn how to protect our environment and all of its inhabitants. While it is celebrated in the spring in the northern hemisphere, it is actually observed in the autumn in the southern hemisphere (both days being the exact “middle point” of the season).

This year, find a way to celebrate. Take notice of all that we HAVE to celebrate and no matter how small and insignificant your actions may seem, they matter… they add up… they make a difference…

Take action, talk about it, MAKE a difference… EVERY day should be Earth Day!

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"!

  1. Thanks for this reminder of earth day! I think this holiday should be put out in the public even MORE! I didnt hear a word uttered about earth day from anyone yesterday. I go to a community college and nothing was mentioned. I watched the news and the concern else where. I went to the local news website thinking they have to mention it somewhere. Sure enough they did! This made me feel a little better. I celebrated by planting some flowers! Thanks for all the tips. Hopefully the holiday can grown and expand even more next year.

  2. Great reminders, Doreen, to help everyone keep the green alive and well. There was quite a crowd on the National Mall in DC this weekend to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. I’m happy to see that many people are getting fired up about such an important issue. And, setting excellent examples for our kids is a key factor.
