Celebrate Earth Day 2012 – 1 Billion #Green Acts

Happy Earth Day 2012! Celebrate today wherever you are and contribute to the 1 billion acts of green. People around the world are contributing to the Billion Acts of Green. What are you doing today?

Although it’s cold and rainy where I am today, I did buy American grown strawberries that I am going to freeze and use them later for delicious strawberry smoothies and sorbet. Also bought cage free eggs (yes, they were more expensive than others), I felt good about these 2 acts of green.

Enjoy your day…spread the green today!

So in the next 5-10 years will more EV ports be popping up amongst fuel pumps?
