So I am watching The Today Show and all this week they are focusing on global warming and the effects on the planet. In the back of my mind I always knew the environment needed our help, but didn't think I could really make that much of a difference. I mean I recycle, my bin I drag out to the curb is overflowing every week. I am slowly switching my lightbulbs to more efficient ones. My Hubby and I have been trying to winterize our house and make it more energy efficient, albiet hard to do since the house is 130 years old and needs more updating than my wallet can stretch right now. We recently purchased energy efficient appliances, does that make up for the number of times we have to use them, they seem to be on nonstop? I've checked out The Today Show website, they have a link to 7 ways to help the planet in 7 days. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032633/
I find many of these things I am already doing. What else is there?
So I turned to Oprah, she knows all right! And of course she did a show on Going Green. Check it out... http://www2.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/200704/tows_past_20070420.jhtml
There is a page of websites to check out for more info as well. Like did you know...Idling 10 minutes less per day can keep 550 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the air every year. There is alot of good info here.
So why am I posting on this? I wanted to know what everyone else is doing. Comment back and tell me how you are helping.
