5 Ways You Can Participate in Earth Day 2009

Green (Living) Review

April 14, 2009; Boulder, Colorado : According to the Earth Day Network’s web site, it took us (collectively as a human race) about 125 years to use our first trillion barrels of oil. We’re going to use up the next trillion barrels in only 30 years. It stands to reason our increased oil usage has an impact on our environment, our health and our lives. So this year as we celebrate Earth Day let’s remember there are simple yet effective steps we can take to help preserve our world.

Green Life Smart Life

Having finally landed in one piece (mostly) on the East Coast after a whirlwind week of traveling to Opportunity Green in Los Angeles and GreenBuild 2009 in Phoenix, I am just now gathering my thoughts and notes from the shows. I have to say, GreenBuild proved not only to be the best green event I’ve been to all year, but the best overall trade show I attended in 2009. Gore pointed out that right now, in 2009, we have all the tools we need to solve the climate crisis.
