Happy Earth Day!

I was doing a little reading on Wikipedia about Earth Day and it mentions there are two different Earth Days – April 22 and on March equinox – who knew? Learn more about ourEarth Days at Wikipedia.

As I mentioned on twitter this morning…last night I discovered a cool TV show on National Geographic’s HD channel: Big Ideas for a Small Planet. They were having a marathon of all the episodes to date, I think.

I’m not sure, but it looks like Big Ideas for a Small Planet was originally aired on Sundance Channel. It was really inspiring to see so many people working to make the world a better, more sustainable place.

Last summer I posted about William McDonough and his Cradle to Cradle Design ideas, which I think are exactly what we need. If you’ve never heard of McDonough follow the links from this article to a good video about Cradle to Cradle design.

Tales from a “Mompreneur”

Amy Rogerson of ShirtseedAmy Rogerson, a good friend and client, recently started her own blog. Shirts From Seed is about being a mother and being in business. Her business is Shirtseed Bamboo and Organic Cotton T-Shirts.

Check out her blog and leave a comment or two to encourage her to get the ball rolling. She’s really passionate about all things ethical and environmental (Yay! We need more of these people in business) and has a lot to say. She’s also a pleasure to debate with.

Best of luck Amy!
