Quick Green Reads For The Weekend Volume 208

April 15, 2011

Over the years, many ideas have been placed on the table for eco- or biofriendly cities. Designs have shown futuristic buildings, domed communities and places most of us never would have thought of, even in our wildest dreams.

Want to help spread the eco-word? Work for the No Impact Project! Just a little news about the No Impact Project, the non-profit effort I started to help people to become engaged citizens through both lifestyle change and community and national political involvement (from both sides of the aisle).

According to a nationwide online survey conducted in April of this year, 72 percent of the American public does not know that conventional plastic is made from petroleum products, primarily oil. (Yikes!)

Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law Tuesday a mandate that 33% of electricity in California must come from renewable sources by 2020. Executives at solar, wind and other clean energy companies said the new regulations could help California reclaim its green leadership position after losing ground to states such as Texas and Iowa.

In all seriousness, April is Children and Nature Awareness Month and those clever nature lovers at the Children and Nature Network are saying, Let’s G.O.! (Go Outside), and I couldn’t agree more.

Have a great weekend…
