Today Is Blog Action Day

Simple Ways To Help The Environment
I try to follow this rule. If not LOCALLY PRODUCED, then Organic. If not ORGANIC, then Family farm. If not FAMILY FARM, then local business. If not a LOCAL BUSINESS, then Fair Trade.

I always take a cloth bag or shopping tote everywhere with me for quick errands or small shopping excursions.

I pick up one piece of trash off the ground every day. If everyone did this simple task think of the impact that would have.
I also try to avoid buying products that have a lot of packaging. This can be difficult when buying for kids - especially toys- but I have found when you look around there are lots of options out there.
Recycle - Recycle - Recycle - The energy saved by recycling 1 aluminum pop can is enough for a television to run for three hours.

yup. this is an idea i wanted to push so much i made a website for it.

picking up litter hadn't been amongst the ideas getting pushed just yet though, certainly a good habit to get into.
