This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Buy Green Products. All opinions are 100% mine.
Going Green is a huge deal right now. I talk a lot about green products on this blog and other blogs I own. I try to give you as much information as possible but I can’t tell you about everything, so I thought that letting you know about a great site where you can find information on green products is something many of you may be interested in. Buy Green Products is a website where you can find places to buy green products, coupons for green products and find out about renewable events.
One thing I love about this site is that you can search green products by price, percentage off and deals. They even have a daily deal. The site itself is also very easy to use and of course it’s green, literally green and I love it as it just fits the theme. Another great feature of this site is that their are videos about green products so you can watch and figure out if that product is right for you.
I’m bookmarking this site because I love the information on it and the green news section has a pretty cool product that you should check out, no I’m not telling you what it is, check out the site if you want to know more.

I found a blog post about this very interesting architectural concept called the Dragon Fly. It’s a self sustaining farm designed by Vincent Callebaut Architecture. This architectural farm will allow for living, laboratory and other work spaces along with providing food for the city surrounding it. It has been said that as we continue to grow as a population food will be harder to come by. We also as a society are trying to discard our dependence on oil to help save money and the environment. This could be a very good solution to getting food to major cities where ground space is limited.
Yes this looks huge, but I kind of like it. It’s interesting and since it sustains itself could be worth the cost to build it. What is your first reaction to this conceptual building, do you think this is the way of the future or just a fun design that will never happen?

I am still considering switching my hosting service and I have found many sites that offer great reviews on web hosting but I really like the set of of Web Hosting Geeks. They have everything in categories, rated and reviewed by users. They also have a great list of green web host many of them are actually names I recognize. If your big on green web host you need to check out their list of hosting services and find one that works for you.
I myself am thinking about checking out hostgator, now powered by wind and one I have considered before or a new service called Green Avocado. I love the name and the fact that they are a also wind power service. Of course if your not looking to go green there are many other hosting services on Web Hosting Geeks and I’m sure you’ll find one to fit your needs weather it be dedicated servers or a free domain name. They have many categories, like best blog hosting, multiple domain hosting and best reseller hosting. I am going to be checking out a few hosting services on their site myself just to figure out what will work for me best and what will not.
If your looking to set up your first website I really recommend checking out this site. It’s very helpful and will hopefully not only get you a good deal on hosting services but will get you good hosting as well.

I have been trying to change how I live, it’s hard when you have a lack of funds and you don’t own your own home, but I’m doing well. I have decided to do more research into living better and found a great community with ideas that you will hopefully love too. It’s the The Tree of Tomorrow Community Site and not only do they have information on living a sustainable and natural life, but they have other information that can help you spiritually and educationally.
I love their section on homeschooling as my aunt home schools her son. It’s something that I am finding more and more people want to do as the quality of our schools decrease. One of the articles talks about socialization and home schooling. Something that can be hard to do sometimes. Another section of the site takes about trading and exchanging locally. This is something that a friend of mine does and it really can be a lot of fun. This section is great for people looking to get started trading.
The sustainable and natural living section of this site is one that I really like and am planning on reading a lot more of. The information in this section is wonderful and very useful. It talks about solar energy, wind energy and transportation. You can also learn about growing mushrooms, algae and running a green house too.
If your thinking about becoming a sustainable person, you really should check this site out. I know I will be bookmarking it and referring to it often.

It seems that it’s that time of year again, the time of year where we see gas prices starting to go crazy and we think “why do we have to deal with this?” The good news is that we do not have to deal with this, remember there are things you can do to keep gas prices down. The end result of these things results in less oil bought and used, that brings down the price of fuel.
What can you do?
Buy less gas. yes I know your thinking duh, but really you need to make a plan to buy less gas. Start by figureing out ways to take less trips with your car. Stop at the store on the way home from work or school. Carpool if you can and encourage others to do the same.
Stop using disposable water bottles. They take oil to make and it also takes a lot of oil to ship those things. Buy a filter or a water bottle that filters and use that.
If you have the money to get a better car do it, buy a fuel efficient car if you travel a lot or have a long commute. I did and if I can you can do it too.
Grow a garden, this helps keep gas prices down by reducing your trips to the store, fresh produce in your own back yard is better then running to the store to buy it all of the time.
Do you have any suggestions for keeping gas prices down? If so share them.

Every summer I love to go outside and look at the night sky. I am very lucky as I live in the middle of nowhere and can actually see the stars when they are out. It’s fun to sit and make shapes out of stars and of course share the experience with my friends and family. If you don’t live in an area where you can see stars don’t worry you could always check out the Dark Sky Festival in Harmony Florida. It is on April 25th from 6 to 11pm and it a great way to help fight light pollution and show our children exactly what they are missing when they look up.
The dangers of light is becoming clearer to more and more people. Research as shown that people who live in more populated and well lit areas tend to be more likely to have breast cancer. More research involving the effect of light on our health is ongoing.
Of course being that this is close to Walt Disney world you can make this a great family event. I wanted to attend last year, but could not and it’s the same this year. School kind of gets in the way of traveling, but if you think you can get there you should check it out take a trip to Disney for me and show your children a great time in an area that is becoming more environmentally friendly and watching how much light they put out into the sky at night.

I’m reading on yahoo as I usually end up doing a few times a day and I come across this story on global warming and how we really could be in some big trouble soon. Now I was enjoying my reading until I got to this part.
Longtime global warming skeptic Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., citing a recent poll, said in a statement, “Hansen, (former Vice President) Gore and the media have been trumpeting man-made climate doom since the 1980s. But Americans are not buying it.”
Taken from Yahoo
The first though in my head after reading this was “who are you to tell me what I believe and what I think!” Personally I feel that most Americans are not stupid and can see what is right in front of their damn face. Now if this man stopped getting his income from oil and other environmentally harming companies then maybe he would see differently.
This brings me to my question, the title of my post. Global Warming are you buying it or do you think it’s just a made up dooms day scenario?
