Wow I didn't know they did the bicycling on GooGoo maps. I always wanted to know what routes to take.

Now I know and the ETA to get to work? 3 hours and 25 minutes.

Happy Earth Day!!! emoticon

Do something good for your "Mother":
* switch out your regular bulbs for CFLs or LEDs
* use a reusable shopping bag
* combine car trips, carpool, or ride your bike
* eat less meat
* unplug appliances, computers, etc. when not in use
* turn off the lights when you leave a room
* wash most of your laundry in cold water
* switch to non-toxic, biodegradable, cruelty-free cleaning and beauty products
* turn your heater off and wear a sweater or...
* turn off the A/C and wear shorts
* shop at a farmers' market
* buy local and organic when possible

Any other suggestions?

It's the 40th anniversary of Earth Day this year! What are you doing to celebrate?

I'm volunteering at TreePeople, an organization that promotes sustainable urban environments.
www.treepeople.org/

Also, if I'm not working on the 17th, I'll be attending a composting workshop and an Earth Day fair.

Check out some of the great ideas on the "Earth Day To-Do List" on the Nature Conservancy website:
www.nature.org/

And if you want to leave your car at home this Earth Day or any day, Google Maps has added a bicycling feature. Cool!
