Earth Day 2010

Earth Day is coming up this Thursday. One of the events I’m working on for work is a tree planting day. The trees are being planted to help control erosion, provide habitat for wildlife, and some visual screening between recreation areas (this is all dependent upon where exactly the trees are planted).

I type this as a commercial for a disposable hand towel plays in the other room.

I had a very different post set to go up instead of this one. It was one where I wrote about being torn between my comfort level and what’s good for the environment. It’s a very rough balance and I don’t know what the answer is.

So, instead of me yammering on about carbon footprints, sustainable living, and the like, I’m going to take a minute to showcase a few cool products and companies that are committed to sustainability.
