Earth Month begins tomorrow and that means that ProudGreenHome will begin celebrating in earnest. We're already about all things green, but with April heralding the beginning of Earth Month, with Earth Day, April 22, the pinnacle of it all, it only makes sense that we write about even more on the green front.
So, be prepared to read about green paint, green appliances, green landscaping, green sustainability trends and on and on. Yes. And a bit of green homebuilding. So much of our lives are taken up by the small things, from which earth-friendly household cleaners to use, to which sustainable companies to frequent, that it only makes sense to focus on more things green this month.
For our own celebration for Earth Day, we will be focusing on different companies throughout the month. Sometimes they will be a bit out of the ordinary — such as a company making amazing organic papers, or Earth Day celebrations from the federal government. But be assured that whatever they are, they will be green. And interesting.
So, head out and enjoy the unseasonably warm spring weather we've been having around the country and celebrate green in the most traditional sense — by admiring all the new green leaves and flowers sprouting up in the most unlikely of places.
