Simple Ways To Help Going Green On Vacation

Thursday, October 08, 2009
Violet Flower at Safari Garden

Right now, we are preparing for a family holiday at the end of this month. That's why I thought of sharing a link related to going green on vacation for this week's Nature Notes and Think Green Thursday.

While googling around the Web, my attentions were caught up by the Green Vacation Tips on Simple Ways To Help by Djuna Woods. Although it seems that she has stopped blogging in August 2008, I really think that her green blog is worth a visit. She has a beautiful water drops header with a lot of green links on the sidebar. This is what she says about her blog:
Simple Ways to Help the World,
From your Car, Condo or Cubicle

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” -Theodore Roosevelt

[...] By making small modifications in our lives we can collectively make a big difference in the world.

We can all help the world in simple ways right here and right now from exactly where we are and with exactly what we have. Let’s get started.

Have a wonderful vacation, Rosidah. I'm sure you and your family will LOVE it. George and I try our best to 'go green' wherever we are--but it's harder on vacation.

Have fun.

Rambling Woods said...

I too want to wish you a wonderful vacation. This is a great green post. I had never thought of this'. No natural souvenirs: I will not disturb the natural ecosystem by bringing home any rocks or shells to decorate my hall bathroom.' This is a great point. Thank you for participating in Nature Notes and Thinking Green.. Michelle
