To Green or Not To Green. Is There Really Any Question?

It seems to me that most people can agree, whether they believe in the existence of a little thing called global warming or not, that it wouldn't hurt any to live a little more ecologically friendly lifestyle. The earth certainly won't complain about a few tons less of that stinky garbage that's piling up off the coast of... well, off the coast of many places. Problem is, in today's world, it's not always easy to do what's best for the environment. We're bombarded with easy-cook, microwaveable meals in their plastic packaging and chemical snack cakes in their individual foil wrappers. With the hectic pace of life in the average family, it's all too easy to succumb to the convenience foods that practically jump off the grocery store shelves. Besides, who has time to hunt for alternative products that might lessen our impact on the environment around us? Certainly not you, right? No problem. I'll do it for you.

That's right, and for an UNlimited time only. In my quest to lighten my load on the world, I will be searching for online resources for information and products that could lead me to a cleaner lifestyle. And, why not share these goodies with you? Yeah, that's what I thought. So, that's what I'll do.

Now, being in France, I am not in a great position to try many of the American websites out, so I often won't be able to vouch for their service, but I'll at least let you know they are there*. "Why can't I just google and find them myself?" you ask. Well, if you were so inclined, I guess you already would have. Anyway, sometimes we are just simply unaware of the existence of a certain product or service out there today. Can't google it if you don't know about it. That's why I'm here to inform you of the little things I learn, as I learn them. So, sit back, relax and click your way to a cleaner, greener lifestyle.

*If you've tried a site I mention and would like to vouch for it, please let me know. And, watch the sidebar for listings of the sites I come across that I find interesting.
