With all of the eco-talk these days and all the days to come from here until forever (after all, saving the earth is now a way of life – NOT a trend), we feel as though being a part of it – actively – is important. So here are some of the Earth-friendly events that you can take part in – live or via webcam, webcast or webinar. No matter how you participate, just do it. That’s the only true way to become educated and get green.
Chat Live with Kelly and Eco-Experts
On Tuesday, April 13, at 1 p.m. PST, Kelly Ripa hosted a Webcast online at kelly-confidential.com. (To learn more )
It was her first live webcast in support of Earth Day and Global Green USA. Joining her was a killer team of “ecopros” including Josie Maran, creator of an ecofriendly makeup line; Zem Joaquin, founder and CEO of Ecofabulous; and Anna Getty, green living and holistic lifestyle expert — who will take questions and make suggestions on everyday green living. Afterward, stay tuned in for tips and tricks at the Green Idea Swap. Here’s the best part: For every shared idea, Electrolux donated $1 to Global Green USA (up to $25K). Not too bad!
