Today, October 15, is Blog Action Day. Bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind - the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.
Here are 3 ways to participate:
- Post on your blog relating to the environment on Blog Action Day
- Donate your day’s earnings to an environmental charity
- Promote Blog Action Day around the web
My humble conribution to a better environment:
To help the environment, I do and also try to educate my kids to pay attention to little things that may seem to be a drop in the ocean, but I am sure can make a difference. For example, I limit my gas comsumption by going groceries only once a week, I try not to overuse water, I turn off the light when I leave a room, I send ink cartidge for the computer to recycling, and we are recycling everything that can be, etc ... More recycling ideas here.

My journey to vegetarianism:
I am a lacto-ovo-vegetarian. Most people think (and I use to be one of them) that being a vegetarian consists of not eating animal meat. It is not quite simple.
Nowadays, many foods
hide contain ingredients derived from slaughter by-products! What a trick to the unaware customers! Even veggie burgers are suspicious! That is really scary because Vegetarianism is supposed to make people feel safe, right? I guess the only way to know what our food contains, is to prepare our own homemade veggie burgers -- and any other dish -- ourselves.
When it comes to healthy and mindful eating is to KIS (Keep It Simple). The Golden Rule to keep in mind when grocery shopping is "the lest processed is best".
Now, what have you done to help the environment today?
