Cody's List of Green Things.

Ok I said I would go to the websites Jessica Miller suggested in her article and adopt some Green practices to get this process started.

First of all here are the websites.

1. Ecocycle.org
2. Treehugger.com
3. Wecansolveit.org
4. Localharvest.org

Ok here's my honest assesment.

Ecocycle is intense and industrial looking. Lost my attention and I closed the window. Wecansolveit is just a petition and methods to contact the press and legislators and peer pressure folks into biting off on the idea. Not what i was looking for either. Tree Hugger had a interesting article about making your sex life more Green, read that whole thing and sent link to my wife. I also found a home lighting issue where switching to the more energy efficient light bulbs a good way to reduce your "Carbon Footprint" as well as it is cost effective. That's it!! That's the first Codytalks.com initiative to reducing our readers Carbon Footprint. You don't need to rip out all the old school bulbs and do a massive replace, just as needed put fancy Compact fluorescent lamps in your fixtures. Here we go!!! Baby steps and we will have a new program initiative in a week or two.

Oh yeah on localharvest.org it says we have 3 farmers markets and 3 seperate farms producing/selling local raised foods in the Hutchinson area. Some organic. So I am gonna think about that. Sorry that's all I am committing to is contemplating that.

  1. I know you're a google guy, but http://green.yahoo.com/ is also a pretty interesting site. Specifically the 'calculate your impact' section and (relative to your new light bulb initiative) '18 seconds' section.

  3. If you can get past the fact that this is Vice President Al Gore's website, it provides a pretty simple list of things to do.

    Most of these are conservation oriented, not activist, quite reasonable and not only have a positive effect on the climate, but also your pocket book.

    Thank you the link is incredible. Exact what I was needing, doesn't force me to sell my soul to Siera Club but gives me easy steps to transition my life without huge inconveniences.

    p.s. if you could come up with a pseudonym, I would appreciate it. I have no problem with folks protecting their identity, but if you don't call yourself something we can't tie one comment of yours to the next or previous one. See my dilemma???

    Anyhow, Thanks for the post and the great link.
