Earth Day 2010: For your wedding day and beyond

While I love talking about weddings, there is a lot more to living a life with your partner once the party is over. On this 40th birthday of Earth Day, I wanted to share some great sites that you may not know of. Some are wedding related; some simply provide information that you can use right now – at the very least after you settle into life together.

I Am E. I’m loving this new way to throw up a ‘sign’. This eco-friendly movement that has been sweeping the nation. The E campaign which is being designed to give Earth Day a fresh face, draw new people into the environmental movement and inspires everyone to take positive action for the planet. Wanted to share the video with you. Their site has some great information as well, so please stop by and find ways you can green-up.

This site has a wealth of information so I absolutely invite you to check it out.
