How Will You Do Good for the Earth This Year?
As part of your resolutions this year it might be necessary to take a more active role in what you do to live more sustainably. This is not a political commentary but since the election environmental groups have been in a blind panic about the political landscape and the future of our planet as a result of the proposed changes in policy and landscape in DC.

I ask that those of you in the scope of this newsletter look to yourself as the master of change in your 'kingdoms of influence'. Think positive. Be positive. Your thoughts become actions. Act positive, be positive. Your actions become habits. Positive habits can change the world. Starting with me. Starting with you. Grassroots, I like that.
