Yes, I know I haven't blogged in ages....well, ok...maybe not ages....but I have definitely put blogging on the back burner while I have tended to my yard for the past couple of weeks. The nice weather here in Seattle has been long over do and I just couldn't pass up being outside. I mean, it just snowed here a month ago for goodness sake. I love to be warm, so 70, 80 degree days and I am a happy camper.
Yes, I went to the Green festival. It was a lot of fun, however, there weren't as many green "real estate" related companies as I had anticipated. I did have fabulous food....oh yummy organic Yaki Sobi noodle dish...I still think about you. There was music and just an overall nice atmosphere.
My best girlfriend was there. She works for a "green" pest control company called Alpha Ecological.
I really should have picked her brain a bit about what makes her company green but I know that she had been asked that enough that weekend (I would say hundreds of times based on her exhaustion level at the end of the weekend). Some people were even down-right rude about it. It is understandable for consumers to want to educate themselves and it is important for "green" companies to disclose what makes them stand apart from standard practices...(we know that greenwashing runs rampant). My biggest concern is that I would hate for those companies who are taking baby steps towards being green to get discouraged by those overly aggressive "green activists." I guess what I am saying is we shouldn't jump down people's throats to say "Your company isn't as green as it should be"...but rather give suggestions as to how they can green up.
I have noticed that it isn't easy being green. I am faced on a daily basis with skeptics. Those people who say global warming is a fallacy, it is all a consumer ploy for companies to make more money, our actions don't have an effect on the earth, chemicals are fine, depleting our natural resources, ...who cares?
I can go on and on about the daily rebuttals of trying to live my life green. But do you know what? I don't care what some of you think. I will continue to go against the stream and forge forward...because I AM making a difference whether you are or not. I could save my breath but instead I choose to yell from mountain tops. And for those of you who don't want to listen...well then try not to watch as well....for I also live by example.
STAY TUNED for the newest "Green Living" changes I have made: Rain Barrels, Organic Gardening, Composting, Getting rid of Dandelions Naturally (without chemicals such as weed-b-gone), Home water purifying system, Hot Tubing without chemicals, Smart Strip Energy Savers, Chlorine-Free Bath ball and Shower Filter, and more.
