I learned about a wonderful website, Earth Trends, offering many suggestions, several of which are pretty simple, about things we can each do to help make our increasingly crowded, biologically challenging world a more sustainable place for ourselves and future generations.

Many of these suggestions you have heard before, like turn off the water when your wash your car and use a bucket instead. But the list here is so comprehensive, I wanted to share it with you.

Hopefully , we will all think a little harder about what we do, and don't do, to contribute to the problems of the world's environment. 

Did you know that recycling one aluminum can saves enough electricity to run a TV for 3 hours or that compact fluorescent bulbs use only one-quarter of the energy of an ordinary light bulb and last 8-12 times longer. (Each bulb saves 500 lbs. of CO2 per year)

I hope you will visit Earth Trends to learn about saving our planet and Hat Team to learn about Montgomery AL real estate.
