Earth Week Wrap-up

Our fifth and final "Earth Day" installment will cover some odds and ends.  The first thing on the agenda is to talk about the Traditional Earth Day dinner.  What?  You say you haven’t heard of this?  Well….neither have I.  But, this sounds like a good tradition to start!  Why not have some good friends and family over to enjoy a thoughtful earth friendly meal.  Good food, good friends, good wine….now that sounds like a nice Sunday evening.

Earlier this week I stumbled on a website that has a "diet scorer".  You plunk in what foods you normally eat and it spits back a score of how green your diet is.  I am not sure how the math behind it is calculated,  but it is pretty fun to play with.   Also on this site you can "tour the food chain".  This is an interactive animated look at the different components of our conventional food chain.

Lastly, if you are in the San Diego area this Sunday and are looking for a fun way to spend the day — check out Earthfair 2007 at Balboa Park.  Last year around 60,000 people showed up to celebrate Earth Day.  If you can make it, keep an eye out for a couple of guys wearing t-shirts.  ;)  For information on events in your area, take a look at Monday’s post for links or just do a quick google search.  These tend to be educational and a lot of fun.

Have a great weekend!  Talk to you on Monday.
