EARTH DAY 2010
New Way of Living
For the 40th anniversary of Earth Day in 2010, the world is in greater peril than ever, but there is also unprecedented opportunity to build a new future. Earth Day has the power to bring about historic advances in climate policy, renewable energy and green jobs and catalyze millions who make personal commitments to sustainability - A Billion Acts of Green™ – mobilizing the power of people to create change by taking small steps in our homes, our schools and our businesses that add up to an enormous collective action.
Earth Day 40 is a pivotal opportunity for people, corporations, and governments to join together to create a global green economy. Our coordinated efforts now will be recognized by future generations as a turning point.
It’s a nearly unbelievable fact: Indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air. Toxins like radon, carbon monoxide, mold, and gasoline shuffled in on shoes are all culprits. But another guilty party? Yep, cleaning products. According to the Clean Water Fund, the average U.S. household uses 40 pounds each year of harmful cleaning products, which can cause allergies, headaches, and more.
Ironically, cleaning products aren’t required to disclose their ingredients, but those big, bold “danger”, “warning” and “caution” labels might say enough. To be safe, why not switch to a couple eco-friendly grime-busters this spring? Thanks to the boom in “green” living, there are now a number of great products on the market.
