ANSWER TO THOUGHT FOR THURSDAY AND EARTH-FRIENDLY FRIDAY


ANSWER: VENUS (So many of you are so smart)

AND now it's time for Earth-Friendly Friday.

Check out the Green Heroes Grant Program here.

The gist of the program is to spread some good green and watch your eco-friendly community project grow!

Here is what they say:

"We want to recognize and reward you for your efforts to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Enter The Green Works™ Green Heroes Grant Program and you could be one of five Green Heroes who'll each receive a $10,000 grant to help your eco-friendly community project grow and flourish!

Whether your project takes place on your neighborhood block or throughout your entire community, just upload a photo of your green program in action and then describe how a Green Heroes grant could help your project blossom. A panel of Eco-Experts, including representatives from the Sierra Club, ecofabulous.com and Josh Dorfman – the Lazy Environmentalist, will select 10 finalists. The public will then have the opportunity to vote for five Green Heroes who will receive a $10,000 grant from the Green Works™ team!"

We have tons of windmills in Oregon: clean wind power. They originated - I think - in Denmark.

Love these green ideas.

This sounds great...my community is sooo behind when it comes to green living...they don't seem to even be trying to do anything to go green...I wish I could think of something to enter with...
