I recently learned about Earth Hour 2009 and I want to tell you now, so you mark your calendars.
Earth Hour started in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, with 2.2 million homes and businesses turning off their lights for one hour as a “vote” FOR the earth, and a “vote” AGAINST global warming. By 2008, this movement had grown to 50 million people, and even darkened the Sydney Opera House, Rome’s Colosseum, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and the Coca-Cola sign in NYCs Times Square.
This year the goal is ONE BILLION people switching off their lights in a unified vote, because, regardless of where you live, we all depend on the same planet! This is the perfect time to turn off the lights, discuss global warming with your children, talk about what you can do to fight global warming and just “cozy-up” to consider taking actions to assure that we aren’t polluting our earth and overusing resources in our everyday lives – and realize how vital our actions are. You might even consider contacting local officials and get your city, town or municipality to “switch off” too!… I did!
Mark your calendar: Saturday, March 28, 2009, from 8:30 – 9:30 PM
Stand up, sign up and take responsibility.
Will you “vote” with me?

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"!
