thanks to blogs, we can spread info on green practices quickly and to a broader audience. i just hope many of us will walk the talk. :)

hi lalaine, awareness helps a lot but the problem is does this news reaches the less fortunate living beside the rivers who also contributes a large part of today's trash on our rivers.

dra. rio, wala namang walang kwentang blog. maybe each blog has its own purpose kaya balance lang not unless a blog destroys someone else's reputation or dignity. salamat sa pagpromote sa blog, i appreciate that.

cheeseburger sa Mcdo? sure.

barry, you're right. but what i noticed on most the blogs featured here shared their own practice of conservation and recycling which means they teach us by example. good enough.

Emily said...

I'm right with you!... although I wish my world were a little more green (the color) right now.
I moved from Seattle to Salt lake City (that's from green to brown).
Thank you for spreading goodness.
Every bit counts. Isn't it amazing how much more conscious we are than our parents were?
