Prepare for Earth Day Now

Earth Day is on its way and the organization has a new goal, planting 10,000 trees by March 31. Every dollar you send means a new arboreal life will exist. The Canopy Project will bring back much needed trees to Mexico, Haiti or other places ravaged by disaster. And even if you cannot donate much, you can sign up to help them reach their goal of a billion acts of green. Start a compost pile, pledge to not buy bottled water or try organic gardening and join the over 60 million who have already offered support.

GatherGreen, the Environmentally Friendly Groupon

Imagine a Groupon for the green-minded. The LA based GatherGreen gives you easy access to local sustainable goods and services with 50 to 90% savings. The way it works is explained in the video, but basically you get a deal when you get two others to go in on it. Most of the offerings are food for now, but we expect that they will move up to products like solar arrays and other basic gadgets. The site features World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) if you want to volunteer to make the planet a better place or just want to learn how to build your own.

(Thanks, Julie and Rosette)

Dynamis Turns Garbage Into Power

Although it is not solar powered, we find that this company is certainly noteworthy. Dynamis Energy, located in Alaska, has found a way to turn trash into fuel. Their 3.0 waste-to-energy system is simple to install and operate and they claim that it can prevent up to 11 million metric tons of greenhouss gases annually. It can produce heat, power and power recovery up to 50 MW (the size of a small town) in one of its larger systems. The company has just announced that its next installation will be in Ada County, Idaho. Contact Dynamis if you want your very own garbage converter.

(Thanks, Laurel)
