You don’t have to save the world single handed. It’s not an all or nothing proposition for each individual. It’s simply about doing the best you can in any given day. What I’m doing today is spreading the word for Blog Action Day 2009: Climate Change.

As Monika Baurlein states today in MotherJones.com, “Fix the Climate or the Kid Gets It.” (Clever title!) We need to convince “Americans that something we care about is actually at risk here. And of course something is is. Climate change poses the greatest danger not to polar bears, not to glaciers or beaches, but to our kids.”

So what’s a busy person to do? Here are some ideas that are easy:

Should You Care About Global Warming?

Why the Wind Blows

The answer is a resounding “Yes!” according to Matthys Levy, who wrote “Why the Wind Blows: A History of Weather and Global Warming.” Why? Levy states that reversing the global warming course will help future generations. My belief is that through choosing greener ways of living, we improve our own lives today as well.

I think you will enjoy reading Mr. Levy’s personal insights to questions I posed to him recently. I know I did!

As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been writing more and more about healthy eating and healthy living in general. Now that I eat a Vegan diet (no animal foods), I discover and create great new recipes all the time. I’ll be sharing the best ones with you here. You don’t have to be Vegan to eat them, but, shhhh, here’s a little secret, if you do eat them, they will make you really healthy and make you less likely to crave foods that are bad for you. So don’t tell that part of yourself that thinks being a vegetarian is something you could never do. Just eat it an enjoy!

So here’s my favorite smoothie recipe: Continue Reading →

The Coolest Green Habits to Adopt Today: Blog Action Day

Blog Action Day

Bloggers Unite - Blog Action Day

If you’re like me, thinking about global warming and the health of our environment is alarming. It makes me want to take action. The health of our planet directly affects our own health, so it is a no-brainer to begin to change our own behaviors and do everything we can to make a difference.

Over the last 9 months I’ve learned a lot about “Going Green.” I can’t say that I’m making a huge difference yet, but over time I’ve changed some habits and I plan to keep looking for more ways to lessen my impact on the environment. I know that by being one link in a long chain of others, together we can make a huge difference. Hopefully this one blog post may inspire you to find ways to keep our planet healthy. That’s why I’m participating in Blog Action Day.

Making a Difference: My Favorite Cool Green Habits

Simply by being aware of things you can do, you’ll be more likely to take action. So I thought I would list my personal favorites that I’ve learned and use. Each of the headings below links to a more in depth article on that topic.

Green Cleaning:

  • Using baking soda and vinegar as cleaning agents is an eco-friendly way to keep your home spic-n-span.
  • House Plants! The all natural air freshener. My favorite is to grow some herbs like basil and parsley.
  • Plant a Tree! If everyone in the United States planted a tree, that would be 300 million new trees!
  • Air Freshener: boil citrus fruit skins in water for 30 minutes.

Things You Can Do Today to Help Save the Environment

  • Unplug unused electronics.
  • Print less and reuse the blank side of garbage paper.
  • Recycle as much as you can: paper, plastics, glass and more.
  • Turn the temperature down 2 degrees on your water heater.
  • Use less water. Try to never leave the water running unnecessarily.
  • Keep your tires fully inflated. Check the pressure monthly.
  • Walk and bicycle instead of driving.
  • Buy local produce.
  • Buy a Hybrid car. (This will be my next car.)
  • See if you can work from home full or part time.
  • Spread the word and enlist others to take part in becoming more environmentally conscious.

Recycle with a Yard Sale

  • Don’t just throw out your old stuff. If it’s useful, sell it or donate it.

Top 25 Natural Home Remedies

  • Where possible say no to harmful chemical treatments. Instead try out some of these natural home remedies.

Non-Toxic Roach Killer

  • This simple, odorless, easy, non-toxic method for killing cockroaches works! And best of all there is no clean up! Really! Check it out!

The Greenest Vehicles of 2007

  • If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, be sure to check out this list that was put together by the Sierra Club. It may surprise you.

Green Cleaning: Easy and Natural Ways to Clean and Freshen Your Home

Green Cleaning: Easy and Natural Ways to Clean and Freshen Your Home

How would you like to clean and freshen your home without harsh chemicals? No more fumes choking your breathing, no more harsh chemicals drying out your skin. Well, you can! It’s easy, economical, and good for the environment. You can make these recipes in large batches and put them inside air tight containers.

My advice is to print out this article and try a new one each week.

Glass Cleaning

  • Combine equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Clean with rags, paper towels, or newspaper.

Air Fresheners

  • House Plants! The all natural air freshener!
  • Open your windows!
  • Baking Soda in fridge and garbage can to absorb odors.
  • Boil and then simmer a few sections of a citrus fruit or cinnamon or cloves in a pot with water for an hour.
  • Add drop or two of your favorite essential oil on the inside of your toilet paper roll. Each spin will release a fresh scent to your bathroom.

Furniture Polish

  • Combine 1 tspn lemon oil and 1 cup vegetable oil. Apply with clean dry cloth.

Polishing Silver

  • Combine 1 quart/liter water, 1 Tbsp salt, 1 Tbsp baking soda and 1 piece aluminum foil. Add sterling silver items to be cleaned. Boil for approximately 3 minutes. Remove and polish with dry soft cloth. Do not use on silver plated items.

All Purpose Cleaners

  • Vinegar and salt mixed together make a good surface cleaner.
  • Baking soda (4 Tbsp) and warm water (1 quart/liter) is a good general cleaner.
  • Baking soda on a damp sponge. This will clean and deodorize all kitchen and bathroom surfaces.
  • Mix 3 Tbsp white vinegar, 1 tspn vegetable oil soap (such as Murphy’s Oil Soap), 3 cups hot water. Use from a bucket or a spray bottle. Use and wipe clean.

Scouring Solution

  • Use dry table salt or baking soda with a damp sponge to scour and then rinse.

“Soft Scrub” Solution

  • Mix 1/4 cup Borax and enough Vegetable-Oil Soap (such as Murphy’s) to make a paste. Then add 1/2 tspn lemon oil. Use with a sponge and rinse well. Important Note: Borax is poisonous if swallowed so keep stored safely away from children and pets.

Toilet Cleaner

  • Sprinkle baking soda into the toilet. Next add vinegar and then scrub with brush. This will clean and deodorize.
  • Tough stains: Pour 1 cup Borax into toilet bowl and leave overnight. Scrub and flush in the morning. Important Note: Borax is poisonous if swallowed so keep pets away if you have one that drinks out of the toilet.

Drain Cleaner and Freshener for Disposal drains

  • Pour 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain. Then pour in 1 cup of vinegar. Let the mixture foam for a few minutes. Then flush with a gallon of boiling water. Lastly if you have a disposal, finish up with some ice cubes to sharpen the blades and old citrus rinds to freshen up.

Tub & Tile Cleaners

  • Depending on the level of dirt, grime, use either diluted or full strength vinegar to clean and baking soda for scouring. Rinse well. Vinegar alone can be used if scouring is not required.
  • Cleaning Grout: make a paste of baking soda and warm water and scrub with sponge or old toothbrush. Rinse well.
  • Hard Lime Deposits on chrome: soften up for easy cleaning by covering with vinegar soaked towels. Let soften for 1 hour before cleaning.
  • Rust & Hard Water Stains: apply white vinegar or lemon juice. Leave on until spot disappears. May need to be repeated.
  • Mildew Removal: dissolve 1/2 cup borax with 1/2 vinegar in some warm water. Use sponge to apply and wipe clean. Pure white vinegar alone can work also.

Cleaning Pots

  • Soak pots and pans in warm water and a couple teaspoons of baking soda in the water. Then clean normally with liquid dish soap.

Carpet Cleaning

  • Stain remover: soak the stain with club soda and blot until the stain is removed.
  • Dog/Cat Urine on Carpet: use towel to absorb as much as possible. Wash using warm water and liquid dish soap. Rinse with 1/4 cup vinegar in 2 cups warm water. Soak up with towels and apply pressure to absorb as much moisture as possible. Leave towels in place for a few hours. Then remove towels and allow to dry completely. A fan can be used to speed up the proces.
  • Freshen Carpets: mix 2 cups baking soda with 30 drops of lavender essential oil in bowl. Make sure any clumps are broken up and mixed well. Next, before vacuuming, sprinkle this mixture from a shaker type container. Let stand for 15 minutes. Then vacuum.

Floor Cleaner

  • Mix: 1 cup vinegar, 1 Tbsp vegetable oil based soap, and 2 gallons of hot water. Use with a mop.

Removing Wax

  • Dip cotton cloth in rubbing alcohol and sponge off.

Removing Sticky Labels and Adhesives

  • Use vinegar. Be sure to soak as much as necessary to loosen first. Only use this on surfaces that are washable.

Laundry

  • Try adding one or all of these to your laundry: white vinegar (1/2-1 cup), borax (1/2 cup), and/or baking soda (1/2 cup). Borax is said to be a better whitener for clothes while creating far less damage than bleach. Remember to keep Borax away from children and pets as it is poisonous if swallowed.

How to Love Vegetables


How to Love Vegetables

Show of hands? How many of you don’t like vegetables or at best find them to be a dietary “task” that needs to completed? I used to feel that way too until I learned a little secret: vegetables can be yummy if cooked right! Now when I cook, I usually have at least 3 or more vegetable dishes at dinner.

This is the kickoff of a health series that will showcase 5 delicious vegetable recipes in each edition.

Not all of these recipes are quick, but they are all mmm, mmm, good! Prepare to fall in love with your vegetables!

1. Cauliflower Scampi

1 Head Cauliflower cut into bite size florets
4-6 medium tomatoes diced (fresh best, but canned will do in a pinch)
1 elephant garlic clove finely diced or minced or grated
2-4 T Olive Oil
Salt to taste

Prep and cut vegetables. Cook cauliflower until just starting to get soft. Steam, boil or microwave steam is fine. In separate large frying pan heat up olive oil on medium high heat. Add garlic and stir quickly so it doesn’t get burned. After about 1 1/2 minutes add diced tomatoes and all juices from dicing. Cook on med-high until it starts to reduce into a slightly thicker sauce. About 10 minutes. It will still be very liquidy. That’s fine. Next add cauliflower and let simmer for another 10-15 minutes. Serve hot.

2. South Western Corn

Fresh Corn (canned corn will do in a pinch too)
Fresh Basil leaves finely chopped
Salt
Pepper
Butter or Olive Oil

Prep basil leaves. Boil corn for 5 minutes or until cooked. Cut kernels off cobs and place into bowl. Add butter or olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste.

3. Broiled Asparagus with Lemon Infusion

Bunch Fresh Asparagus washed and bottom 1/3 ends cut off
1 whole Lemon cut into quarters
2-4 T Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Drizzle 1/2 the olive oil on a broiling pan. Place prepped asparagus on top of the oil. Drizzle the rest of the olive oil on top. Roll the asparagus around so they get coated in the oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil on high for about 1-2 minutes. Roll the asparagus to turn over. Add juice from half the lemon. (and if needed add more olive oil – optional) Broil again for another 2 minutes. It’s very important to keep a close eye on these so they don’t get burned. Depending on your oven and your taste, you may want to cook for more or less time. When done squeeze the remaining half of lemon juice on top. Serve and enjoy.

4. Naked Old World Spinach

1-2 packages of fresh (organic) washed baby spinach (you can substitute kale, mache or your favorite greens)
1 elephant garlic clove diced, minced or grated
1-2 T olive oil
1/4 cup water
salt

In large pot or frying pan, heat olive oil until hot on medium high heat. Add garlic and stir quickly to keep from burning for 1 1/2 minutes or until start to smell nice aroma. Add 1/2 package of spinach. Stir very quickly. Once coated with olive oil and garlic add the other half of package. Stir quickly. If anything starts sticking to bottom of pan add just enough water to loosen it up. Cook spinach just until wilted. If cooking 2 packages wait until the first package wilts down a bit so you’ll have room for the rest. You’ll be amazed at how much the spinach wilts down! Add salt to taste and enjoy this gourmet spinach.

5. Savoy Cabbage Gratin from “Great Greens: Fresh, Flavorful, and Innovative Recipes” by Georgeanne Brennan

This can actually be a main dish served with salad and bread. This is so yummy, even your kids will love it!

1 Head Savoy Cabbage, about 2 pounds (can substitute Kale or other favorite greens)
1 Large Yellow Onion
4 T Butter (or Olive Oil)
1 t Salt
1 T All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Milk
2 T freshly grated Gruyere Cheese
2 T freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
3 T Bread Crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter large baking dish

Cut cabbage in quarters and then into very thin slices. Discard the core. Cut onion into thinnest slices possible. In large skillet with tight fitting lid over medium-high heat, melt 3 T of the butter. When foams, add the onion and cover and reduce heat to Low. Sweat the onion, stirring occassionally until near dissolved but not browned. Approximately 15-20 minutes. Add Cabbage. Although it will seem difficult to get it into the pan, the cabbage will wilt down considerably. Cover pan and cook until wilted, about 15 minutes. Uncover pan, stirring occasionally, cooking for another 15 minutes.

Add salt and pepper. Sprinkle flour on top and stir. Turn heat up to High and add milk a little at a time to create a sauce. Cook another 5 minutes until thickened. Spread cabbage mixture evenly into baking dish.

In small bowl combine cheeses and bread crumbs. Sprinkle over the cabbage mixture and dot with the remaining 1 T butter. Bake until top is crusty and golden and the edges are bubbling, about 20 minutes. Spoon the gratin from the baking dish and serve hot. You won’t believe how delicious this is!!

Things You Can Do Today to Help Save the Environment


Do You Want to Make a Positive Impact on the Environment?

The health of our environment is top of mind for most everyone these days. It’s easy to feel a little hopeless about it at first. Well, you can erase that notion! There ARE things you can do and you CAN make a difference! This article will show you how, from easy stuff to actions that will take more of a commitment. Many of these ideas can save you money too! Some have an upfront cost, but if you look at the savings in energy costs over time, the net can be savings for you and a cleaner world for all.

Melting Iceberg

You may feel like your contribution is small, but it’s not. How you live your life will influence other people. Your contribution added to everyone else’s “green” contributions will cumulatively make a large difference. So if you are concerned about the environment, but unsure how you can make a difference, then take a look at these actions you can start doing and begin today! Do what you can today, plan to do more in the future, and spread the word to get everyone involved!

Measuring Impact

About 25% of carbon emissions come from personal activities (cars, electricity in our homes, food we buy, etc.). The other 75% comes from commerce, industry, agriculture, oil mining, trucking, military, and more. The average American produces approximately 22 tons (44,000 pounds) of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year. The worldwide average is 6 tons (12,000 pounds) per person per year. Work on reducing your own carbon footprint, those emissions that stem from your actions, and then encourage others to do the same. Like anything, start small and build on successes.

What You Can Do

In the House

  1. Turn Off the Lights. And anything else you’re not using such as your computer, printer, etc.
  2. Print Less. Reuse the other side of paper you no longer need.
  3. Lights. Use compact flourescent bulbs. The more bulbs you replace the greater your electricity savings will be.
  4. Unplug. Any device that is plugged in and is turned off, is still drawing power. Unplug chargers and anything else you can while you’re not using it. When electrical devices are done charging, remove them and unplug them.
  5. Water Heater. Turn down the setting by 2 degrees for a significant savings
  6. Home Temperature: Turn Thermostat down 2 degrees in winter and up 2 degrees in summer. According to StopGlobalWarming.org, this will save 22,000 pounds of CO2 per year and $98 per year in utility bills. Change the filters for A/C and heaters regularly. Wear a sweater in the winter and use fans in the summer instead of A/C when you can.
  7. Washing Machines: only do laundry or run the dishwasher when it’s full. This saves water, electricity and washing soap. Hang your clothes to dry instead of using a dryer.
  8. Defrost Fridge. Defrost your fridge/freezer regularly.
  9. Old appliances. Replace a fridge older than 15 years with an energy efficient one. The same for boilers.
  10. Weatherproofing. Have your home inspected by the local energy company to see what you can do to make it more energy efficient such as insulation of your home, insulating your water heater, caulk & weatherstrip doors and windows, install double paned windows and more.
  11. Recycle your Gray Water. This is wastewater that is generated from domestic processes such as washing dishes, laundry and bathing. It can be used for watering your grass and plants and more.
  12. Boiling Water: only boil as much water as you need.
  13. Showers. Take shorter showers and install low-flow shower heads with built in shut-off valve. Turn down the water when washing your hair.
  14. Install a Water Filter. Use this instead of buying bottled water and you’ll save money and tons of CO2 that it takes to ship that water.
  15. Water Heater. Switch to a tankless water heater which heats the water as you need it instead of storing it.

Shopping

  1. One Trip. Try to buy the week’s groceries in one trip.
  2. Use reusable cloth bags for your groceries.
  3. Buy locally grown (in season) organic produce or try growing some of your own!
  4. Buy products made close to home.
  5. Reduce Meat Consumption. This is because of the CO2 that is produced from shipping it.
  6. Recycled Goods. Use recycled paper and other recycled products.
  7. Recycle. Recycle all paper, plastic and glass.
  8. Reduce Garbage. Buy products with minimal packaging.

Cars and Travel

  1. Tires. Check monthly to keep them fully inflated.
  2. Air Filter. Check your car’s air filter monthly and change it as needed.
  3. Commuting and Traveling. When you can, carpooling, public transportation and walking/cycling are all better choices than driving alone.
  4. Buy a Hybrid Car or Fuel Efficient Car.
  5. Exercise. Run, walk, bike, etc. instead of driving to the gym.
  6. Travel. Use land or sea travel (trains, buses, ferries) when you can instead of air travel.
  7. Work from Home. Find out if you can work from home one or more days per week.
  8. Vacations via Bicycle. If possible considering renting bikes instead of a car for your next vacation. Consider vacations closer to home.
  9. Hotels. Do all the same things you would do at home. Turn A/C down, turn TV off, etc when you leave the room. Ask to have linens and towels washed every other day or less.

Other

  1. Buy Energy Certificates. This is a donation to help grow the renewable energy market with things like wind and solar energy. In some places you can get tax credits for these. Check with your local and state government.
  2. Plant a Tree.
  3. Mowing the Law. Use a push mower.
  4. Other Activities. Think about your hobbies and whether they contribute to CO2 emissions. If they do, consider cutting back or replacing them with less polluting activities. Examples are: Go-Carts, saunas, health clubs, restaurants & bars, off-roading, motor boating, etc.
  5. Install renewable energy generators such as solar panels or wind turbines. These are expensive options, but you will have electricity savings to offset it and in some locations you can get tax credits.

Political

Make your voice be heard on this issue. Vote for candidates who promise to take action on making laws that will encourage individuals and institutions to make green choices. Write to your local politicians and let them know how you feel. Go to StopGlobalWarming.org to find easy ideas on how to make your voice heard. There is also a wealth of information there. Do check it out!

Will It Make a Difference?

Yes. Some of these things you may think “Just because I buy lesser packaged goods doesn’t make the highly packaged ones disappear. So what’s the difference?” The difference is that over time if many people make these choices, then demand for the more environmentally harmful ones will go down and less will be produced. And YOUR CHOICES will have contributed to that!

You don’t have to do all these things to make a difference, but the more you can do the better. And be sure to tell your friends!
