Blog Action Day: 5 Little Things You Can Do to Help the Environment

It’s finally here: Blog Action Day! Even though I haven’t been posting on this blog as often as I once was, there is no way I will blow off my commitment to post on this day. Heres a list I’ve compiled of five little things you can do to help the environment.

1. Use CFL’s. Compact Flouresent lamps use one fith of the energy of a regular light bulb. They may cost a few extra dollars, but they make up for it by lasting between eight and fifteen times longer and saving an average of $30 a month off your power bill if you equip your whole house with them.

2. Turn electronics off when they aren’t in use. When you leave a room turn off the light. When you aren’t watching the TV turn it off. When you aren’t using the DVD player/Wii/Computer/Stereo turn it off. Its that simple.

3. Recycle. Every person in the United States should have recycling bin in there house. It saves energy and keeps our resources and materials out of landfills. The only reason not to recycle is pure lazyness.

4. Don’t waste. Got an old bike in your garage that you don’t ride any more? Don’t put it out for the trash. Give it to a neighbor kid, take it to your local Goodwill, give it away on a site like craigslist or Freecycle. There is no reason to send something that can still be used to a landfill.

5. Buy a environmentally friendly car.

Heres a list from Greenercars.org of the 12 greenest vehicles of 2007:

1. HONDA CIVIC GX

2. TOYOTA PRIUS

3. HONDA CIVIC HYBRID

4. NISSAN ALTIMA HYBRID

5. TOYOTA YARIS

6. TOYOTA COROLLA

7. TOYOTA CAMRY HYBRID

8. HONDA FIT

9. KIA RIO / RIO 5

10. HYUNDAI ACCENT

11. HYUNDAI ELANTRA

12. HONDA CIVIC

Now go do your part. Everyone getting together to make a difference, how ever small the contribution, is what Blog Action Day is all about.

Readers… Are You Out There?

I was just wondering, is there any body out there that is reading my blog regularly? In my blog stats I’ve been seeing referrals from a personal Bloglines page. I’m pretty sure that means someone added me to Bloglines, but who? If there is someone It will greatly motivate me to post every single day, if there isn’t I’ll just look stupid… except no ones really reading my blog so no one will see me being stupid! If you do read my blog on a regular basis in any way please comment on this post.

Strange South Korean Halo Commercials

These advertisements consist of Master Chief scaring people in a mall, fighting a giant lizard, and dancing with people on a subway train. I’m wondering where I can get one of those Master Chief suits.
