Yes We Can!

In honor of the inauguration of the U.S.'s first Black President, I'd like to put this post up for some themes for the first 100 days of the Obama administration with some personal Green Goals.

1) Commit to taking Mass Transit or alternative transportation once in the next 100 days if you have never done so before. And if you already do, consider getting another friend to meet you via mass transit by meeting at a common place more accessible by mass transit.

2) Recycle more, if you see a recyclable item, please pick it up and recycle it. Sure someone may have thrown it away, but this is an action you can do to alleviate it.

3) Consider your own economic stimulus package by spending money on services instead of stuff. If you need stuff, consider buying it second hand or from freecycle. Use the money you saved to buy a meal at a local establishment, get a car wash from a local store or get a massage. We are becoming so more effective at making stuff that our economy cannot thrive only on stuff.

I was listening to the Director Steven Soderberg on the the radio show "The Treatment" and the following phrase struck me, "In life there are no answers, only choices"

The choice is ours, yes we can.
