Earth Day was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, and was first held on April 22, 1970.

Now Earth Day has the Earth Day Network and over 175 countries partake in one week of activites, awareness, and appreciation of the Earth.

Watch for BellaOnline's Green Team!

To all the Bakers,cooks,chefs,wine enthusiasts, homemakers and foodies alike let's start a green forum! In honor of Earth day and being passionate about our Earth, let's put our heads together and bounce ideas and activities off each other about ways we can be more responsible and aware of our environment for now and years to come!

What can we do? How can we alter our lifestyles? ect.

I'll start:

Cleaning our kitchens with products that don't harm our environment.

Eat the freshest and eat local! This helps you, the environment, and helps to start sustainability in your area. I dug up a web site for your local area.

In many parts of the country while the spring weather is not too warm seeds are started indoors and moved into the ground later. Here are some very cool web-sites to check into!

Great for kids too!
Go to:
www(dot)localharvest(dot)org
plug in you zip and you can view local seeds,vendors, farmers markets,and all within your local area.

More to come!
From your garden to your kitchen.

From your garden to your kitchen!

Ever heard of Seeds of Change?

It was started in 1989 to promote things like sustainable organic agriculture.

One can find them at .seedsofchange(dot)com

I have no affiliations with any of the organizations posted here or in previous or future posts. Just pure sharing of information. Enjoying Mother Earth.

Here are a few little thing green things you can do in your kitchen:

Did you know that you save more energy if you load your dishes facing the same way?

It saves energy to run a dish washer full and not 1/2 empty.

Try to put out a hand towel for wiping hands as opposed to using so many paper towels.

Try to use containers already in your cabinet to pack lunches as opposed to using plastic baggies.

More to come. If you have kitchen ideas or food type "green" ideas let us know and share!

Hey Foodies! What is new in your green world?

Has anyone started a garden? From mother earth to your table is the greenest we can get right?

who makes their own wine or crafts beer? Does anyone know any other Greenies out there?

I am hoping the Food Channel can be the leaders in the lessoning of our footprints?

Will you support your local farmer's market?

Will you be selling your garden at a market?

Will you grow your own tea garden?

Becoming green may even save you money.

Drinking filtered water out of your faucett rather than buying water-also saves in landfills because you are using a reuseable drink bottle.

Ride your bike to work/school on days that are nice ride your bike brings you health advantages/saves your fuel/helps to keep the air clean!

Growing your own produce-freshest from your garden to your table! Water from your water barrel!

Can you help make changes?

Thanks,
