Activism: Earth Day 2007

PJ want you to know all about Earth Day....

"Earth Day 2007 is quickly approaching. Check out Earth Day Network's list of nationwide events to see what's happening in your neck of the woods on April 22nd.
How have you treated your planet over the past year? Earth Day is the perfect time to make the choice to make some change.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:
CHANGE YOUR LIGHT BULBS: Energy efficient light bulbs reduce pollution up to 75% and save you about the same amount on your energy bill. Stock up at Save-N-Energy.com.
PLANT A TREE: The cooling effect of a healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners running 20 hours a day. Pick the right tree for your home with the Arbor Day Foundation.
OFFSET YOUR C02: Help reduce C02 emissions by offsetting your carbon footprint. Calculate your footprint and offset it through Conservation International and Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
EAT LOCAL, SHOP LOCAL: Eating locally grown produce and buying goods from local vendors cuts back on the amount of pollution, while giving back to your community's economy. Don't forget to bring along a reusable bag to tote your purchases. Check out Treehugger's guide for shopping green here."
