Taking Blog Action Day & Making It Green - Do we really care?

Education & Training


Diane Aurit's recent post beckons us to be aware of Blog Action Day on October 15th.  Apparently, bloggers from around the world will unite to build awareness about the environment.  Seems like everyone these days is at the very least - thinking green.  From HGTV to Sheron Cardin's efforts to make the human race aware of the reprocussions of our thoughtless disregard for the earth in which we live - being green is alot more than Kermit D. Frog making a statement.

While our family does recycle and has cut down on aerosoles, I'm wondering if the vast majority of Rainers are actually making a conscious effort to slow down the ever growing hole eating away at our atmosphere?  If ecological living is indeed a proactive, life philosphy - then I wonder if we're doing our part? How come we've waited until now to start building mass awareness?

So, for Blog Action Day, I will be writing a blog here on A/R and of course, on my other blog,  It's probably the least I can do to help spread the word. 

According to the Blog Action Day website - there are 3 ways to participate:


So, my fellow A/R bloggers - what are you going to be doing on October 15th?

Hey Stephanie from The Woodlands (great area, by the way) - make sure to mark it on your calendar.  I'm already starting to draft my blog - admittedly, this whole topic of being green is still very new to me.  Can't wait to read your post. - Calie

Calie:  Thanks so much for the link and mention!  I am already collecting a pile of information for a localism blog that day.  I hope every blogger takes the time to get involved!

Hi Calie, I am in on that day too! I have written several "green" posts lately, but have more in me yet....

I have some good clients who live in Chandler in the winter and here in the mountains of Colorado in the summer.  It is a good combo for them!
