Why should you reduce your carbon footprint? And how can you do this?

Well you can start locally and join a green eco club in your area and if there isn't one around join a club on-line. There are also many online site to help give you ideas available.

What are some of the other things that we can do on an individual level to help the environment?

- Turn off the lights when you leave the room
- Recycle your plastic, paper and aluminum cans
- When you go shopping plan your route in an efficient way
- Car pool whenever you can or you and your friend can run your errands together
- Go paperless - for instance, pay your bills online or read your newspaper online to save paper
- Install solar panels or a wind turbine to conserve power
- Encourage recycling at your work place

If you are a DIY enthusiast there are many places to learn how to make solar panels or make your own wind turbine. If you don't have any DIY skills then you can hire someone to convert your house for you or have a friend or neighbor help you with your project and maybe in the future you can return the favor after your DIY skills improve over time.

Clean living is what past generations had, but as we grew more and became an industrialized world so did the pollution. This went unchecked for years now we are faced with severe climate changes, disease, and rising costs of basic needs. Have you noticed the flocks of birds that used to migrate south every winter are getting smaller and small? I remember when the sky was filled with birds on their migration route. Who wants to live like this? I know that I don't want to live this way.

Discover ways support the environment for future generations. Learn to simplify your life and you will soon realize that green living is personally satisfying knowing that you did right by Mother Nature. Eco heaven is about healthy living, lowering bills, and returning to nature.

If we all work together we can make the world a better place to live for our generation and future generations.
