April Giveaway: Earth Day Countdown T-minus 2 days...
How quickly a week goes by and these big and little ecoThings add up to make such an ecoDifference! Keep up the good ecoWork y'all!
With that said, how cool would be to take a picture of our beloved Mama Earth on her day? As in the WHOLE planet on Earth Day? Want to?
This morning, I got my twice-weekly dose of Photojojo. Know it? "One damn fine photo newsletter" as they like to call themselves, Photojojo "finds the best photo shiz anywhere." And I do believe they do stick to their mandate through and through ;:)
This morning's newsletter feature? "Take a Picture of the Whole Entire Planet!" How exactly does one do so, you're wondering?
Well apparently... "It's easy, just take some photos of the world around you on Wednesday April 22nd. Then send your best snap to the good folks at Earth Mosaic, and they’ll use it to create a giant photo mosaic of the Earth!
Then [as Photojojo points out] you can totally brag to your greener-than-thou friends about how you participated in a global art project on Earth Day and all they did was buy organic yams. Wusses."
How about that for a cool and simple Earth Day activity? As for my ecoDeed today?
I'll be finishing the DIYcalendar I ended up drawing up with a cardboard straight edge last night. Note to self: purchase a ruler ;D for better spaced out lines.
See, I had plans of purchasing a 2009 calendar this weekend. A paper calendar to jot down important dates that I'd begun to find myself forgetting since (finally) switching to digital (successfully) last fall. However, while I'm staying digital with iCal, there's nothing like planning the upcoming spring and summer months with a physical calendar in front of you, right? So late last night, I was inspired... Afterall, I've got tons of recycled paper, a great set of colourful Sharpies, and thankfully that handy cardboard straight edge lying around. Why buy when I could make?
Ended saving money ("the green"), being creative, putting my own personal touch to the design, and was "GREEN", simply by doing it myself. Here's to doin' it yourself ! DIY ! w00t !
