great green-ies:

greening.... i find it exciting and hopeful that while there sure are lots of terrible things going on to pollute & harm our planet, there are so many wonderful folks doing fabulous things to help make the world a greener, healthier place! so, the rikrak studio is happy to feature great green-ies : snapshots of amazing, inspiring. eco-forward-thinking folks & groups from all sorts of fields and paths in the greening movement. some inspire by greening at home, or in their business; in their art or the larger world, or on many levels at once! i've asked each green-ie to suggest an easy eco-idea or tip we might all be able to add to our daily lives. today i'm honoured to present the next in this series!

happy earth day, nicies! hope you've been enjoying a wonderful earthy day.

i've been thinking of late about the cyberworld impact on the greening of things... and gosh...there are so many great green websites out there! what a wonderful thing! what great resources!

on earth day, i thought i'd cheer on one of my very faves, the wonderworld that is

it's a treasure trove of info & ideas, with over 30 posts each day, from all walks of life (everything from green basics, to & nature, to design & health articles, to culture & celebrity eco. articles...). has, for a few years now, been my goto site when i have a green question or want to stay up to date on green ideas and issues. great green ideas grow there!

i love the treehugger tri-fold mission: "1. get informed 2. interact 3. take action!" indeed!
so three cheers for on earthday... for working hard each & everyday @ building a world-wide community of earth-loving enthusiasts!


i asked the wonderful Bonnie Alter, a fabulous author @ , if she'd share an earth day eco.tip with us! and i just love her response:

"Take a walk, go to a park and see how the new shoots are coming up, relish the fact that spring comes every year with renewal and beauty for everyone."

many thanks, Bonnie! and what a great tip, indeed!
happy earthday, nicies.
may it be one of great renewal for you.
