Blog Action Day

October 15th, 2007

Today is Blog Action Day. That means that millions (I hope) of bloggers will be writing about the environment today. Will you?

Instead of just writing about the environment and trying to set a positive example by my actions, I’m also trying to bring up interesting environmental facts in everyday conversation. This doesn’t mean that I preach or ask people if they recycle.

I was eating with someone who asked for a to-go box yesterday. Since it fit in the conversation, I said, “Did you know that styrofoam to-go boxes have been banned in at least 100 cities?” I then named a few cities and talked about how styrofoam doesn’t biodegrade.

Challenge yourself to not only blog (if you are a blogger) about the environment today, but also tell someone about it! There are so many things you can talk about, such as reusable shopping bags or how you found a great eco-friendly product at your local store. Talk about eating fresh produce from the Farmer’s Market. Discuss compact fluorescent light bulbs or buying a hybrid car. Whatever suits your fancy!

    You’re using a good tactic. People hate preaching it’s so much better to just talk. I think that’s a huge part of being green — talking to others about it. That’s why Blog Action Day is such a great idea.

    Happy Day!
