Live Green

I feel as though I should give a certain site a little street cred, since my agency built and designed it, and since I am the account executive on the project. Also, it's just flat-out cool.

It's called Living Green, and it's a Better Homes and Gardens site dedicated to help you go green and stop global warming. Each week, there's a new green challenge you can do to help save the earth. For example, last week's green challenge was to change three lightbulbs in your home to CFL bulbs. If you complete the task, you save 900 lbs of carbon. That's pretty substantial.

The coolest feature of this site is that you can invite other people to be part of your green team so you can work together to stop global warming. The weekly challenges are usually pretty simple ways to make a big impact. The first week's challenge was to run the dishwasher only when it's full. That's something you could do fairly easily - and it would even save you money on your water bill.

Anyway, if you read this blog you know that I'm big on going green and stopping global warming. I was pretty excited to work on this project at work, and I think the finished product is pretty sweet. Check it out. Here's the link again: http://livinggreen.bhg.com.
