Cool Green Site

Blog reader adrian2514 recommended Earth Lab, so I thought I'd swing by. It is a great site with resources for living green and links to other relevant sites. I plan to check it out in more detail when I get time (lol... I can hope...). But I really enjoyed the 2008 Earth Day Challenge. It calculates an Earth Conservation Plan score, and this is one test where the lower scores are better. The average ECP for the US is 325, so I was a little proud of my 222. Obviously it leaves plenty of room for improvement. My carbon impact has been drastically lowered in the past year, mostly by general common sense and being aware of my usage of resources, so I can say with confidence that this year will bring more... err, less... of the same. Here's to another year!
