Ok, this is a little different. A very kewl site full of strange and amazing words that will become extinct as the dodo birdie if we don’t ACT NOW! Plus it’s fun. So go get yourself a word today!

Earth Hour

images-2Just a reminder that tomorrow night – March 28 – between 8:30 + 9:30 pm it’s time to turn off the lights. My recommend – gather round a candle with some friends and an acoustic guitar for an urban campfire sing song!!!

World Water Day

images2It’s World Water Week, a time to reflect on how lucky we are to be able to turn on the tap and drink, clean, clear, safe water. In many places it takes hours to haul water which is sketchy best. UNICEF has something happening till March 28 called the Tap Project. Pay a buck for tap water at a participating restaurant that one glass will turn into 40 days of clean drinking water for a child! Or give some $$ – see URL below.

And only turn on the tap when you MUST. Canadians use an average of 329 litres of water a day PER PERSON! That’s twice as much as peeps in Europe. Plus we flush all kinds of crap and toxins down the drain too. Health Canada says 60 water treatment plants are being tested to check wonky levels of drugs, plastics + Bisphenol A. And 100 First Nations communities in this country have boil water advisories!!! I don’t know the answer to this big water debacle other than to say mother nature’s resources are precious and we must care for them so they care for us!

Green Enough Green Enough

2 things. 1 good. 1 not sure.
first an eco-centric search engine by matt + jen in long beach CA who found me on twitter. yay for you + me.

2 the use/overuse of green as a marketing thing. it’s almost a cliche.
so beware of those who are using green purely for the old trad type of gr$$n.
