The low down on what this blog is all about...

Hello everyone!

I have been considering starting a blog for quite some time. I have always enjoyed writing and recently found a topic I am passionate about: the environment. If you read my “About Me” section you will find out how I stumbled across this passion. My daily schedule is often hectic and changes constantly. I work 12 hour night shifts three days a week and try to maintain a life during the day. Because I am often running around and exhausted, it can be a challenge to make the greenest choices possible. I do what I can and don’t stress if I mess up along my path to decreasing my carbon footprint on good ole Mother Earth.

I hope to provide information on what it means to be green and how to make simple, green choices every day.
Why go green? Here are some reasons that might motivate you...

1. Air pollution is getting out of control! Yes, it gives Phoenix beautiful sunrises and sunsets but it is doing awful things to our lungs.
2. The availability of clean water is decreasing. In fact, around 40% of the world’s population doesn’t have enough water to meet daily needs. Many of us don’t think twice about leaving the water running while brushing our teeth... hmmm...
3. Global warming! It can be confusing and I will do my best to explain it in a later post. For now, know that the temperature of the ocean is continually rising and will effect us all. Okay maybe not us directly... but think of future generations please!

Feel free to email me if you have a question on any information I present or have a topic you’d like me to address!

Remember... treat every day like it’s Earth Day! (I love that line... the Environmental Protection Agency came up with it first though).
