This link BLOWS me away: http://www.poodwaddle.com/clocks17.htm. The link takes you to a ticking clock which shows you EXACTLY how many crops and animals are being produced and used in the United States each second. You’ll find the numbers STAGGERING, and maybe even bone chilling. Take a moment and ponder how much crap we all USE.

As Daryl Hannah recently said at GreenFest in CO; People need to remake the American dream. The three Rs recycle, reduce, reuse can use two more: repair and reject.

Perhaps we could all dump one item from our diets, or lifestyle TODAY that is harming our planet. Think of the sheer strength of that action if we all got onboard! I thereby proclaim TODAY that I will join look seriously into joining a CSA, buy fewer packages of non-organic baby carrots from the fruit stands (guilty as charged!!), and stop using toxic nail polish (more on that in a very soon to come post). Tiny steps create TREMENDOUS change. What are you going to do to make a tiny little change today?

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” — Margaret Mead

On Wendesday, September 17, 2008, people around the world will turn off their lights for ten minutes – from 9:50pm to 10:00pm in their local time zone. That’s an easy first step, eh?

Next; check out PETA’s new carbon calculator widget a small interactive tool to determine how much a change in your diet could change your impact on the environment. Simply enter your age, gender, and current eating habits, and the tool will instantly tell you how much carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) you’d prevent from polluting the Earth if you upgraded your diet. Go on, it won’t bite or tell your trainer about that container of mixed nuts you stuffed down your gullet last night!
