Today thousands of bloggers are writing posts on their sites trying to raise awareness on environmental issues. More and more people everyday are growing in their concern for our daily impact on the environment. I’ve written a lot about this, and will continue to do so, not because I am some specialist or know much about the issues but because it is something that is close to my heart and I want to learn more. I want to leave a beautiful world for our children. There are all kinds of things we can do to help take care of the planet, from walking and riding bikes instead of driving, to being more aware of (and cutting down on) the plastic packages the stuff we purchase comes in. But one really fun thing you can do is start a garden and a compost. Whether you live in rural America or a 1-bedroom apartment in a huge city like LA (that’s us) there’s almost always a little space for a garden and compost bin.
