Save the Planet, One Bite at a Time!

Inline

This Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, 2010, I am giving a seminar entitled “Save the Planet, One Bite at a Time!” You may well ask, “So what is this about?”

Over the years Earth Day has become a day of lip service to the environment, where companies pledge allegiance to the need to be good environmental stewards and announce some new corporate initiative that makes them look good.

Health Tip

Keep Your Home Clean without Contaminating the Earth

Everyone appreciates a clean home. We scrub and spray and wash using many different products to achieve a sparkling environment. However, while we may be getting rid of mold and dirt, we might also be expelling a plethora of toxic gases and contaminants into our home and our bodies, many of which can eventually make their way into the soil and water of the earth.

Celebrate Earth Day… Every Day!

Inline

The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970 and over the past 40 years it has grown into a worldwide observance. Earth Day provides an annual opportunity to celebrate our planet and renew our commitment to building a healthier and cleaner world… but we don’t need to limit our commitment to one day out of 365! Good environmental citizenship can easily be a year-round practice of eco-friendly living. Adopting a vegetarian diet tops the list of beneficial choices we can make for the Earth, as it is the single most influential action we can take that will affect our personal impact on the planet.
