This blog was started, and is intended to illustrate that environmentalism happens through small acts, is not difficult, and that it does not always have to be some big life changing event that forces you to live in the tree tops with no electricity. All that being said, one of my small acts was to start this blog to gain some friends to help me save the world.

I am impressed

All I have to say in this post is that I am so glad there are so many smart people out there.  I recently discovered something called Pavegen when I was flipping through the pages of a magazine.  The article made it sound like something very futuristic.  But after looking it up and finding the site for it, it is not in the future it is now.  What it is is these tiles that you put down that collect the kinetic energy from footsteps.  The energy is then stored and used to power small, and potentially large, things.  The tiles have already been placed around certain parts of London.  And will be used for the upcoming Olympics.  really is so ingenious.  Using the power and energy that we create and turning it into usable energy to power stuff we need.  I must keep this entry short, as I really cannot explain any more than I have or my head may explode.  Normally I do not get this excited over techy stuff, but this one really impressed me.  Makes me sleep a little bit easier knowing there are smart people doing smart things to help better the planet and those that live on it.

Just a little side note.  Please sign the petition, if you have not already.  Pass it along to anyone you think may be willing to sign.  I want to be able to use the signatures to make restaurants realize that I am not a lone voice whining all the time, but there are others out there who want them to change some old habits.  Power in numbers right, so lets gets some numbers.  We are doing good, but can do better.  I am shooting for a 100 and know that with some help it will be possible.
Thanks a bunch.
