Green resources

It's been a while since I've posted something other than event notices and media mentions. Today I'd like to take a moment to direct you all toward a few green resources.

NRDC has a Green Living Toolkit, where you will find a comprehensive list of well-written guides, tips, and other resources that will help you live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Treehugger also has a good collection of Go Green Guides, which include everything from "How to Green Your Community" to "How to Green Your Pet."

And, even more importantly, news about pending legislation and global warming appears every day. According to an AP writeup by H. Josef Hebert, last week the EPA "examined the long-term impact of three climate change bills being considered in the Senate, each of which would cap carbon dioxide emissions from cars, industry and power plants with an goal of reducing greenhouse gas releases by 60 to 65 percent by mid-century". For the entire article, read "EPA: Competing Bills Achieve Same Goal".

I have a product for solving one area of our global environmental impact: water bottles. My product is called Gaia's Tribute, and converts ordinary plastic water bottles into a self-watering container for plants. Over 1 billion water bottles go into landfills every year worldwide, and over 50 million each day in my home state of California.

Anyone can use them to grow new plants, and because of this re-use, the Gaia's Tribute containers do not go into landfills. They would instead be used to grow new plants/seedlings/trees, that could reverse global impact. As the bottles degrade over time, the compacting process begins, too. Also, there's an instant reversal and creation of carbon credits by the simple use of this product.

A very large potential for fundraising exists by use of the Gaia's Tribute containers. There is a great potential for distribution of this system 408.476.3750 or e-mail to

Thank you for your time and consideration.
