"One Less Burger, One Safer Planet"

You might not like to hear it, but it's true. Cutting meat out of your meals is one of the best things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. I've said it before, but now you can hear Derrick Z. Jackson say it his Globe Op-Ed, "One Less Burger, One Safer Planet."

Nice to find a local (Mass) blog...thanks for finding this editorial, which I missed. I'm in Springfield and write mostly about poverty and homelessness but increasingly about the environment, because they are so linked.

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that www.EarthLab.com is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April? I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
