Earth Day Resolution #1 – Go Green, I Mean Literally!

March 6, 2008

What would be a resolution, be it New Year’s, Earth Day, or Birthday, without it having something to do with eating habits, diet, or losing some extra pounds? It just seemed like the natural choice for our first Earth Day resolution to have something to do with food. Green food that is, but food nonetheless.

This Earth Day, why not resolve to Go Green, and I mean literally. Promise yourself that you will make an effort to eat more locally grown greens, fruits and other colored vegetables. In addition, start making organic food choices when local options may not be available.

By supporting your local farmers markets and agricultural services, you will contribute to a reduction in the amount of fuel needed to transport the food to your home. In addition, the more nutritious your diet, the better you will look and feel and the greener you will be.

In honor of Earth Day 2008, make a pledge to: Buy Local, Eat Organic, and Go Green! Green-up your food choices (and, may I add that Green M&Ms do not count!) to become healthier while simultaneously helping our environment.


Countdown to Earth Day 2008

February 27, 2008

Mark your calendars now! April 22, 2008 is quickly approaching. As you can see, we at Green Business Alliance have added the Earth Day 2008 countdown calculator to our home page. In just 54 days, millions of people from around the world will celebrate the 39th Annual Earth Day. The focus of Earth Day is to raise awareness of and support our environment and eco-friendly habits. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin was the principal founder of this event which dates back to 1970. It began as a nationwide grassroots demonstration on the environment intended to inspire gratitude for and consciousness of the Earth’s environment.

Earth Day festivities and events will be held here in the United States on Sunday, April 20th in major cities such as: Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas and Miami. Additionally, there will be Earth Day celebrations held locally in schools, community centers, and colleges around the world. The global action theme of this year’s events will be A Call for Climate.

The time is now to start thinking about your Earth Day plans. This blog marks the first in a series dedicated to this global environmental celebration. Check back soon for the next installment of Green Business Alliance’s Earth Day blog.
