Green Fest is in town today - the 2nd of many that has taken over the nation and hopefully, all over the world in the years to come. As Founder, Kevin Danaher explained in the keynote speech, if we are to be in this Recession/Depression for 10 years -- what will get us out of it is the Green Movement. My take on that is that, IT will take the Idea of Excess to finally settle into the masses so that they realize that by recycling, conserving and limiting one's excesses is the only way to lead life. A good green life that respects the Earth and does not exploit it.
Every year, I attend the Green Fest. With my grandfather being a scrap dealer in the 20s-60's, it wasn't hard for me to be taught in this genre of living. After all, for all creatures to exist in the SKiN they are in, they have to limit the quantities that (at one time) seemed to be endless resources. The Green Movement is exciting and one in which every one can participate in. After all, we all should be responsible -- not only to our Families and Communities in which we live but in being a good Stewart to and towards the Planet.
Check out the following websites (that I will provide for you in the days to come) to learn more about how you can go green.
