Celebrating Blog Action Day 2009

It's Blog Action Day There was a time when advocates for the environment felt like salmon fighting to swim upstream. Today, green thinking is the stream. Blog Action Day is an annual event that cultivates discussion around an issue of global importance and this year's topic is climate change. With more than 9,000 bloggers in 151 countries writing about global warming, there's no reason for environmentalists to feel alone anymore.

We write about environmental issues every day, but we're especially encouraged by the Blog Action Day posts from blogs that aren't usually focused on climate change. For example, Kay Bell at Don't Mess with Taxes told her readers how to get tax breaks for installing solar panels and Mike Schramm at the Unofficial Apple Weblog wrote about five world-saving iPhone apps.

If you're new to our site, we encourage you to check out some of our previous posts about the simple things you can do to protect the environment every day, such as unplugging appliances when they're not in use, avoiding bottled water, opting for reusable shopping bags, and commuting by bike. You can get these quick tips delivered directly to your inbox if you sign up for our Daily Green Tip emails.
