Earth Day in 2011 is being observed. We being a responsible citizen should act and promote its message of preserving the earth’s natural environment. It’s time to pledge to commit one act of green, whether it is of tree plantings, switching off the lights and replacing the old one with CFL or doing laundry with cold water, and much more. This action of green will not only save your money in terms of gas and mileage on your vehicle. So, let’s try the following simple actions: Reduce the usage of air conditioning by making an organic roof garden; water plants every day, smell the fragrance of flowers, and watch small creatures flying around; when your laptop battery is full, just unplug the power source, use a hybrid electric source and a laptop with an earth friendly battery; save paper by printing double-sided; refill ink cartridges instead of buying new ones; remove hard drive from old computers then recycle it; spend some of the time you would usually be commuting growing fresh herbs, veggies, fruit in your garden and compost!
