Blog Action Day: Go GREEN!

In an attempt to spread awareness on going green, I was supposed to participate in Blog Action Day today. However, I'm a bit tired and don't really know what to post about. All I can say is that everyone should just make a bit more of an effort to be a little bit nicer to our environment. Even though it might not seem that the little you do will make a big difference, you will be setting an example to those around you. And a lot of people doing a little bit will create a big effect. Some ways to start:
  • Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
  • Turn off your car when idling for more than a minute.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • Bring your own reusable grocery bags to the market (I use Envirosax).
  • Bring Your Own reusable utensils/mugs, rather than using disposable ones.
  • Recycle!
Oh.. and check out the Green Daily - a blog about going green, and all the wonderfully green things out there.

And one more thing... on keeping with the green theme.. my last day in DC was spent out on the National Mall at the Solar Decathlon. It was awesome, and now I totally want to build a house incorporating all the renewable energy/materials/resources and environmentally friendly products they've used in their homes.
