Links of the Week

So you get to do a little “green” reading this weekend (my favorite kind)!

We’ll start with a great article discussing the new and improved (and becoming less expensive) LED lights.  They do not contain mercury (like CFLs), have a better lighting quality and can be dimmed.  As each of my CFLs die out, I’ve decided to replace it with an LED light.

Next, check out this wonderful website that has oodles of suggestions on how to rid your life of plastic!  I already do the first two on the list, and I’ve set a goal to incorporate into my life one item from the list each week.  I’ll keep you posted on how it goes …

And lastly, Mark Bittman’s article illustrates the audacity of big corporations, like Coca-Cola, to make consumers believe these big companies are trying to make our lives better and healthier.  Oh please, please don’t let consumers fall prey to their marketing ploys!

Happy reading!
