If you want to celebrate Earth Day this year, the best way to do it is to treat the Earth more kindly! We were sent this list of ways for Central Floridians to go green and be Earth-friendly! These are local companies that are green and their products are safe for the environment. Now, I haven't used these products, so I can't attest to their effectiveness, etc. These are listener-recommended. There's also this list from MSN and Parenting Magazine that has 14 easy ways to make little changes that will make a BIG difference for the environment!
