Going green is a hot topic & a super hot science fair project. Author & scientist Elizabeth Snoke Harris shows how to impress the fair judges with experiments that show how to harness energy with windmills, make a biogas generator, or create alternative fuels in her hardcover book, “Save the Earth Science Experiments: Science Fair Projects for Eco-Kids”. She provides plenty of winning ideas, along with step-by-step guidance to insure that the end result is a success.
The importance of what children learn will go even beyond the science fair: they’ll have the knowledge to understand what’s happening to Planet Earth & the desire to do something eco-friendly every day.
Teach your kids the value of Being Green!
Spring is almost here! Time to start landscaping your back yard. This year think about using native plants from your local area.
Native plants typically cost less, use less water, and are easier to care for in their natural environment. Plus, they will make your yard look right at home.
The main environmental issue with paint is that much of it contains volatile organic compounds or VOCs. VOCs create ground-level ozone pollution and carry potential health risks.
Buying & painting with low or no VOC paint will release fewer to no VOCs into the air we breath when you paint.

When you are in the grocery store shopping and have the option to buy a product in a metal can or a glass jar…go with the glass jar. That’s because the inside of many metal cans are lined with a plastic liner that contains the chemical Bisphenol A or commonly abbreviated as BPA, which is associated with hormone disruption and can leach from the can liner into the food.
All chemicals are bad, especially in our food, but unfortunately BPA is so widely used and manufactured that you’re not likely to eliminate it from your system altogether. Below are some tips you can take to minimize your exposure to BPA:
- When possible, and especially if you’re pregnant and when feeding a young child, limit the amount of canned food in your diet.
- Avoid using old or scratched polycarbonate bottles. If you’re in the market for a new water bottle, look for stainless steel water bottles that do not have a plastic liner.
- Don’t use plastic containers to heat food in the microwave. Opt for ceramic, glass, or other microwavable dishware.
- Soft or cloudy-colored plastic does not contain BPA.
- If you’re formula feeding your infant, consider using powdered formulas packaged in non-steel cans. Also, choose baby bottles made from glass or plastics that don’t leach BPA (like polypropylene or polyethylene).
Replace your car’s air filter and tune up the engine regularly. A new air filter can increase your car’s miles per gallon by up to 10% and a tune-up can boost your car’s miles per gallon from 4% to 40%.
It’s the 3rd annual Earth Hour in one month – Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30pm.
What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007 as a global climate change initiative, calling individuals and businesses around the world, to turn off their lights for one hour.
- In 2007, 2.2 million homes and businesses seized the challenged.
- In 2008 the message grew into a global sustainability movement with 50 million people switching off their lights.
- In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights.
Get ready to switch off your lights on March 28. It’s just for one hour…if global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square can do it, so can you!
Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30pm.
