Green is 'In'

Welcome to the Neighborhood News

Hello everyone. Our Friday newsletter cannot possibly be any 'greener.'

Our first article comes from author Annette Lyon. She tells us that we can teach children to be more ‘green’, but there’s also something else to gain from teaching them, she says: “Your children may well rise to the “green” challenge—and even pass off some Cub Scout or Activity Day requirements along the way.” Annette’s latest book, “Band of Sisters” is out in bookstores now.

Our next entry is from “Latter-day Sustainability.” The contributor named the article ‘Commentary: Is being "green" too expensive? I don't buy it. (Pun intended)’, and gives us a few points on what to do, namely: reduce, reuse and recycle. He also gives us tips on things that can save us some money. Read it, it might change the way you look at things.

The last article is from “Chocolate on My Cranium”, and the blogger, Cocoa, calls it ‘Au Naturale.’ It’s mainly about the products that we use daily at home, and she just wonders what kind of ingredients the manufacturers put in them. She mentions the following: “We've been using homemade soap for the last year, wear homemade chapstick, and just recently started using homemade laundry detergent.” And she even provides links to websites that have recipes for such items. Fantastic!

As usual, on Fridays Positive Music and Downloads offers Free Download Friday. Please enjoy the music of Colors, and their song "Soledad."

Have a great time this weekend, and go ahead and drop off a few words in the comments section, we'll certainly appreciate that.
