Happy Earth Day!

And Happy Birthday to me!  When I was younger, Earth Day wasn't really on my radar.  But, now, it means so much more.  I think that it is amazing that my birthday has always been Earth Day, and that we are able to celebrate something that is so important (to me and the world) while also celebrating my birthday!

This week I decided I would make "Green Week."  I always try to live green, and have made so many changes over the past several years to live a life with a smaller foot print.  However, I also realize that not everyone is at the same place as me.  You may just be starting on your green journey, or you could be the next "No Impact Man."  Wherever you are in your journey, I hope that I can add a couple interesting ideas to your thought stream.

Most of what I do is not only green, but also helps our budget.  That is a big part of my decision making when it comes to going green.  I don't think it makes a lot of sense to go green, but then purchase an entirely new wardrobe made of only organic fibers; or to buy a new car because it gets better gas mileage, when there isn't anything wrong with your current car.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Earth Day today, and are able to do something green!  Come back this week for some ideas on being green!  And I would love to hear suggestions from you all as well!  What works for your life?  What small changes are you making to live lighter on this earth?
