Green Diva Holidaze: More Ideas for an Earth-Friendly Holiday

Green Diva Holidaze: More Ideas for an Earth-Friendly Holiday

I had fun doing some of my earth-friendly holiday schtick on†Ebru Today last week – details about what I discussed on this timely, silly†green holiday TV segment.

Had an excellent ramblin holidaze show this week in the Green Divas Radio Show studio and am thrilled we were able to record AND podcast finally! Even though I was on the tail end of the flu and was perhaps a bit fuzzy (at least vocally), we managed to get some timely, useful and relevant information in. We may have had more fun than format, but hey, we’re all getting into the spirit – or at least trying to – right? If you want some free entertainment with your green holiday ideas, please listen to the latest podcast of the Green Divas Radio Show.

Otherwise, here are some of the highlights . . .

Green Diva Foodie Fun

Green Divas Mizar, Meg and Jamie each offered one of their family favorite holiday recipes. GD Jamie talked about her fatherís traditional latke recipe. GD Meg offered up her warm red cabbage salad recipe. And GD Mizar got us really hungry with her creme caramel recipe . . . Check out the full post for all the†Green Diva Foodie Holiday Fav Recipes!

Green Diva Mizarís DIY: Earth-Friendly Holiday Wrapping

As always GD Mizar had some wonderful DIY ideas. This week she talked about some creative and greener holiday gift wrapping ideas. Check out†GD Mizarís Itís a Wrap post for all the deets! Or listen to the fun five-minute podcast of GD Mizar’s DIY holiday greener gift wrapping segment.

Feature Interview: Sarah Finnie Robinson of Practically Green

This week we were thrilled to have Sarah Finnie Robinson of†PracticallyGreen.com†on the air with us. PracticallyGreen.com is†a digital tool that makes being sustainable easy, fun and stress-free. They offer common sense ways to be more eco-conscience without having to go to crazy extremes.

One great feature of the site is the ĎActionsí feature, which provides users with really simple and practical (practically green, right?) ideas for making green changes.

PracticallyGreen also offers a product section, where they do extensive background homework on every product, so that us consumers can have some confidence that their ‘green’ purchase isn’t green marketing hype or green washing.

Some criteria for the products found on PracticallyGreen.com . . .

  1. They have to be energy-efficient and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  2. The product must reduce its water usage
  3. Products that claim to be organic must be certified by the USDA
  4. The products may not contain artificial colors, flavors, processed sweeteners, preservatives, and other chemicals or highly processed additives

Thanks for sharing it's lovely. Now what about these truth's and what are we doing? Now let's really look at what changes we might have to be making. Check out the huge Three Gorges Dam in China on Google Earth. Now check out what is surrounding the dam on the mountains. It's thousands of rice patty fields. They have to have them on the mountains, because the flat land is taken up by farms to feed people. China is huge & it's full of farms. We have more people on the planet every second. What about the rubbish dump we create by over packaging things & not being responsible for our rubbish which has resulted in a huge floating rubbish mass larger than Texas full of plastic bottles & plastic bags in the ocean. Are you recycling your envelopes and reusing paper for notes where you can? Check out Google Earth again and see for yourself how much forestry has been cut down in Indonesia alone, let alone Borneo and other places. Brazil has just signed a deal to cut down a lot of their forestry which will be going to China to use. Have you noticed fish starting to run out all over the world? In Australia we have to get calamari from China because Australian waters don’t have the demand for the people here. These are the REAL CHANGES WE HAVE TO MAKE, WE HAVE NO CHOICE! So what is everyone really going to be doing after this month, what being nice and more caring towards each other, we should be doing that and practising that anyway? Do we need to eat bacon &a
