as we all should be aware now our Earth is under crisis, the climate shows most of the damage we have done. Many of us have seen Al Gore's documentary and decided to help ur pleading planet. Inspired by the constant information available to us Ive decided to have a change of lifestyle that is more "eco-friendly".This is a hard process but I though if we made a swap to help share tips and stuff that help us be more "eco-friendly" and helps educate others. There is no better teacher than the example so lets start today.
There are many things you can swap like bags for shopping. Americans use about 450 plastic bags per person, per year. Less than 3% are recycled. Guess where the rest of them are? Shopping bags can be cute , made in any color or pattern. Heres the link for ideas:www.bhappybags.com
Make paper out of used newspapers, old magazines, junk mail any papaer really. Its easy and it looks good.Heres a tutorial link http://www.pioneerthinking.com/makingpaper.html
T-Shirts and other clothing made out of recycled stuff or organic cotton.Shirts with eco-friendly messages.Link to ideas of clothing: http://www.growild.net/index.phpwww.startglobalcooling.net
