Go Green!

God has created such a beautiful planet for us to live in. We are constantly surrounded by the little miracles of nature. Gorgeous scenery, breathtaking sunsets, spectacular views, life, and more! It's so important for each of us to do our part in preserving what we can so easily take for granted. Take this quiz to see what your carbon footprint looks like! I know I'm inspired to be more conscious of my daily choices! Here are some Go Green Tips!

  14. This is a wonderful post - the pairing of these images to promote the idea of being gentler with the Earth. I have to say, I take my canvas bags proudly into the grocery store each time and feel horrible when I forget - which is getting less and less. Again, lovely post. I will be adding you to my lovely blogs list as well. I hope this week is off to a great start. =)
