Being Green

Happy Earth Day!
I try to do what I can when it comes to taking care of the earth, but I have a long way to go. Ultimately I think it would be great to get a Green home (aside from helping the environment you'd save on utility bills), but in the meantime I try to do little things like using Compact Fluorescent bulbs, recycling, using Green cleaning products, trying to conserve water - need to buy some new water efficient fixtures, like a showerhead and screw-in aerators that I found for $5, using reusable bags for shopping (when I remember them - I hang them on the doorknob, you'd think I would notice that and grab them before I leave!) :p In honor of Earth Day, though, I thought I'd look for some good Green Sites and articles to help in the process.
