According to the book "Common Prayer", this "Fragile Earth, Our Island Home" is worth saving, and its limited resources will not last forever unless we all live with our heart. "Gogreen!
"Has become a slogan.
Most of us are a bit-
Recycle glass, paper and plastic, replace grocery bags with canvas bags and try not to waste electricity, water and gasoline.
But there are other people who created the ecological environment.
A friendly life commitment and express their enthusiasm in an open way.
One is the dynamic environmental activist Laura Turner Seder, who has taken the initiative to visit our state and become the headline news for St. Seder
"Green life ! "
According to President Cindy Dunbar, St.
Andrew decided to extend their design beyond the home and accept a lifestyle.
During the two spring days, experts in the field gave full educational lectures on all aspects of responsibility protection, and hundreds of people had new ideas on how to grow a sustainable garden
Build a house to improve energy efficiency, eliminate harmful chemicals and how to understand and promote legislation that encourages the protection of our existing resources.
There are even student activities and markets with a range of products to explore and purchase.
It sounds boring and academic? Not a chance!
Seder's lively keynote on "everyday green life" fascinates the crowd as she outlines ways to eliminate waste habits and keep the family healthy by removing toxic chemicals.
"Every day is Earth Day," said Seder. Make a pledge--
It's easy to start with, such as banning the office from using foam plastic cups, using only reusable water bottles, reusable shopping bags, and changing inefficient incandescent energy and money --

The Sedell couple wanted a house that was elegantly suited to the aldel community, and they communicated that to architect Bill Harrison, AIA.

She is concerned about both the health of the family and the aesthetic taste of the family.

When it comes to "planning and designing green", this requires not only a new way of thinking about the architecture and the natural environment.
They say ecological balance must be found in architecture, development and cities.
The dekels showed three projects they worked on to achieve this goal.
They are trying to promote diversity and density as a direct alternative to suburban sprawl, providing a viable, safe inner city community for the North midtown community, where resources are protected and social growth is promoted. On St.
Andrew's north campus, they are working with landscape architect Ed black to show how natural wetland habitat can cancel, store and replenish natural reservoirs while serving the school's educational mission.
In the Hinds Community College project, they talked about how academic buildings and larger buildings use expensive and relatively inexpensive strategies to reduce the cost of electrical and air conditioning by up to 40%.
All of these projects are trying to expand public value by looking for the best eco-building practices in Mississippi's climate and culture.
In fact, a healthy family is a magical combination of form, function and Earth --
