Happy Green Month Everyone!

Earth Day is officially on April 22, 2012. There is an awesome initiative called A Billion Acts of Green which helps quantify acts of green through an easy-to-use online registration tool.

Communities and organizers can register Earth Day events such as community environmental meetings, tree plantings, large-scale light bulb changes and workplace renewable energy retrofits.* And individuals can register the actions they’re taking to protect the environment – from riding a bike instead of driving and washing laundry in cold water to planting a garden and volunteering with a community clean-up.
Together, these actions add up to something big.

So what will I be doing on Earth Day?
I’ll be speaking at the Green Festival, Sunday, April 22nd at 1pm on the Good Food Stage “Greening your kitchen and your Life.” I am uber excited to be speaking at this fantastic festival and seeing others who are committed to sustainable living.

NY Green Festival & Giveaway

Green Festival is project of Green America and Global Exchange. Not only is it the largest sustainability event in the world, the festival is the only green event that screens exhibitors for their commitment to sustainability, ecological balance and social justice using Green America’s green business standards. The Green Festival usually happens several times in year in various cities.

“What you can do at Green Festival to help:

  • Bring your own water bottle, plate and utensils.
  • Bring old cell phones, batteries and e-waste to recycle.
  • Compost all foodware at the event at a Resource Recovery Station.
  • Take only the handouts you’ll read and recycle them.
  • Ride your bike! Take the bus! Get $5 off admission.
  • Spread the message – sustainable living is possible!
  • Be sure to thank our volunteers.
  • Gotta drive? Carpool!”

I will be hosting a series of giveaways leading up to Earth Day. To kick us off on the right low-carbon footprint, my first giveaway is 2 tickets to the Green Festival!

Would love to attend! My green habit this month is to call Governor Cuomo at least 4 times a month to let him know he should ban fracking in New York State.
