Happy 2009!

Happy New Year! I can not believe how fast 2008 went by. It was a quiet New Years eve for our family as we watched the fireworks going off around the lake on the stroke of midnight.

Tis the time for new year resolutions, so this year I challenge everyone to incorporate at least one green habit into your lifestyle. A few simple suggestions for a greener way of living: use a recycling bag for groceries to save on disposable plastic bags, recycle your trash – did you know only 11% of our waste needs to go to a landfill? Maybe purchase locally grown produce or organic products. Shop with green in mind – food, cleaners, laundry care, and clothing. Save on gas when you can, and reduce the amount of energy consumption. Celebrate Earth Day this year and give something back to the planet, enjoy nature and maybe plant a tree. Take the pledge, and become a good neighbor. There are many little things we can do on a daily basis, feel free to add suggestions and comments.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
