Taking care of ourselves & our planet

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead

I finally did it!

I have been encouraged by many friends to start up a blog to share my ideas for "going green" from the inside-out. Although I don't feel I am an expert on the topic, I try my hardest to learn and teach what we can do to keep ourselves and our Earth beautiful and clean.

About a year ago, I came into contact with a City employee whose mission it was to continue the Environmental Education program that no longer fit in the budget. So, I added additional volunteer appearances for "Recycle Girl" in local schools and started spreading my message.

When that same City employee nominated me as Volunteer of the Month for Keep Texas Beautiful on my birthday this year, I took it as a sign that I needed to jump start a career. On a very long Sunday, I taught myself video editing and put together a short film giving an example of what my lessons/performances are like.

My short term goal is to get federal grants to perform for different school districts across Texas. My long term goal is to sign on with a network to do short commercial-type lessons on kids' programs.

I'm currently working on revising my video...more to come soon!

My dear childhood friend wrote the following on her blog. http://praiseworthythings.blogspot.com/2009/08/being-good-stewards-recycle-girl.html
