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. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/22/business/leds-emerge-as-a-popular-green-lighting.html
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 … http://plasticfreeguide.com/
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! http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/22/coke-blinks/?hp
