Being “green”, “environmental”, “eco-friendly” (call it what you will) does not happen overnight. Despite this blog, I know I still have a long way to go and plenty to learn.
One resource that I’ve found to help me along the way is too great to keep a secret: Together Green. This site has thought of everything, condensed into one great resource. Whether you want to green your home, work, travel or your community, they’ve covered it.
And if you have one area that you feel most passionate about (whether it’s land, water, air, energy or wildlife), again… covered!
I’ve never felt it was about installing solar panels on your roof top – and not to say that isn’t an amazing way to green your home – but it’s about little daily actions that all add up to a great big difference. Check them out for some great ideas.
And while I’m at it, I want to share a great resource for my fellow Ohioans! (O-H! I-O!… you may only get that if you’re an Ohioan!) 🙂 A reader asked me about an eco-friendly boutique for body products that she had heard about on the news. While I had no idea what particular store it may have been, I was able to send her to Ec-Ohio. This state based directory lists everything from food to pet supplies to building materials to funerals (maybe you don’t want to think about THAT just yet), but they’re a great resource as well.
If you know of a great state directory to share with readers, please comment and help spread the green!
While I do think that I’m a great blog (to visit frequently, by the way!) I know that I don’t have all the answers. These sites are great resources… just remember who sent you!
