Going Green: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Happy Earth Day!  In honor of this great day, I thought a  few green links were in order to help us all go green.  Of course, there are very simple ways to start being green by following the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra, and think twice before throwing something out, use steel bottles in place of plastic and try to avoid one time use plastics.   These are all small steps, but they make a huge difference.  Moreover, we can use public transportation as opposed to taking a car, or if you must drive buy an electric car.  Another great idea is composting your garbage.  There are so many smart Eco-friendly ideas, and thankfully there are websites out there to find the perfect green steps to take for you.

The first website I would like to share is Earth911.com where you can find articles and videos advising of tips to reduce your carbon foot print as well as a handy search engine to find local recycling centers for electronics, cell phones, compact discs, computers, floppy disks, game consoles, ink jet cartridges, MP3 players, medical equipment, office machines,records,cassette tapes, etc.  Earth911.com

Another website is for the Earth Day Network where you can obtain news, program and donation information, quizzes and yes, you can even measure your carbon foot print!  EarthDay.org

Lastly, a very helpful website to go green while helping out your neighbor is Freecycle.org.  At Freecycle, you can advertise items you are looking for and/or wish to donate, and as the name states it’s all for free.

Lest ye’ forget, the best way to go green is bring your family, friends and communities in on the action.  Rally your elected officials for cleaner and more efficient methods of public transportation, garbage and recyclables collection and most importantly issues inclusive of clean water,  clean air and clean energy.  Thanks to all for making the effort to make our world a better place for us all!
