Save Our Planet
Clean Up the Earth Day
-- This day takes place exactly six months after Earth Day in April. It is a day to reflect on the progress made to make a cleaner world since that holiday, and a day to redouble efforts to make the world a cleaner place in the future. It is a day to refocus on the goals of Earth Day, to carry you forward another half a year until Earth Day comes around again next Spring. If nothing else, the day should be spent cleaning up the earth a bit, such as by picking up garbage in your neighborhood.

Read: Save Our Planet: 750 Everyday Ways You Can Help Clean Up the Earth
-- Even though you are just one person who may have never done anything extraordinary before, you can change the world. Did you know:
• Every day the Earth receives enough solar energy to heat every home in the world for one year—free.
• It takes twenty trees to keep one baby in disposable diapers for two years.
• Of the billion pounds of pesticides used each year in the U.S., less than one percent reaches a pest.
• The average American throws out their own weight in packaging every month.
• If your office recycled one ton of the paper it uses, you'd be saving seventeen trees and keeping sixty pounds of air pollution out of the sky.
There are hundreds of tips in this book, but don't let the numbers throw you. Even if you follow just one or two of the suggestions provided, tangible progress will be made towards restoring vitality to the Earth.

The Adventures of a Plastic Bottle: A Story About Recycling
-- Learn about recycling from a new perspective! Peek into this diary of a plastic bottle as it goes on a journey from the refinery plant, to the manufacturing line, to the store shelf, to a garbage can, and finally to a recycling plant where it emerges into its new life... as a fleece jacket! Told from the point of view of a free-spirited plastic bottle, kids can share in the daily experiences and inner thoughts of the bottle through his personal journal. The diary entries will be fun and humorous yet point out the ecological significance behind each product and the resources used to make it. Readers will never look at a plastic bottle the same way again!

Catherine

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
