Shades of Chartreuse - Freshly Green Tips
Announcements That Will Help You Grow Greener This Month
With Spring arriving in just a few days on March 20, there is no better time to think "green" then now. As this long winter wraps up, here are a few dates you might be interested in.
These environmental efforts are easy to participate in with the potential to make a difference in the world.
March 20: If you are trying to change your diet, a good way to begin this spring is to "just say no" to meat. A 25 year old tradition, Meatout asks participants to "kick the meat habit (at least for a day) and explore a wholesome, non-violent diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains." If this is a topic you want to explore further, check out the FREE Vegetarian "Starter Kit."
March 22 - March 28: The Tap Project encourages restaurant patrons to donate $1- for the free tap water that is traditionally served. Participating restaurants give the proceeds to UNICEF in support of their effort "to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world." Amazingly, just $1- is enough to provide a child with clean drinking water for 40 days! To find a participating restaurant, put in your zip code at Tap In Your City.
March 28: Help light up the world more efficiently by turning off your lights! Earth Hour takes place at 8:30-9:30PM. The goal is to get 1 Billion people to "VOTE EARTH" by turning off your lights in a election to stop global warming. Besides spreading the idea around the globe, this is a fun learning opportunity for kids, too.
