The simple act of unplugging electronics when you aren’t using them not only reduces energy, but could save you as much as 10 percent on your electric bill.
With Earth Day’s 40th anniversary on April 22nd (Thursday) fast approaching, Cascadian Farm wants you to join the celebration by pledging to follow a few eco-friendly tips on Facebook. Choose from eight different pledges, ranging from reusing clothes to reducing your speed while driving on the highway, and find the one that fits your lifestyle. For each person that signs a pledge now through May 31, 2010, Cascadian Farm will donate $1, up to $40,000, to the Organic Farming Research Foundation, which fosters the improvement and widespread adoption of organic farming systems.
As the Organic Farming Research Foundation continues to sow seeds to transform agriculture, you can do your part to initiate a positive change for healthier foods and a healthier earth by visiting http://www.facebook.com/cascadianfarm and signing the pledge that’s right for you.
Dedicated to organic goodness since 1972, Cascadian Farm products are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers or genetically engineered ingredients. With your help, we can all live greener together.

The kind folks at Cascadian Farms through MyBlogSpark, have provided me with a prize pack to giveaway to one of my readers in honor of Earth Day’s 40th Anniversary and Cascadian Farm’s Earth Day Pledge on Facebook!
An Important Note for my Reader’s: these are NOT GLUTEN-FREE products! I wanted to participate in this giveaway to help spread awareness of Cascadian Farm’s Earth Day Pledge and encourage everyone to get involved, even if in one small way. I obviously cannot review the products for you because, well, you know, that whole gluten “thing” kinda gets in the way! 😀 When my prize pack arrives in the mail, I am going to donate it to my local food bank. You could do the same or give it to a friend or loved one who can eat gluten!
The “Live Green Together” prize pack includes Cascadian Farm Cereals and Granola Bars, including: Fruitful O’s Cereal, Cinnamon Crunch Cereal, Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bars, Dark Chocolate Almond Granola, Dark Chocolate Almond Granola Bars, Oats & Honey Granola and an Eco-Friendly Grocery Bag.
To enter this Giveaway, simply answer this question in the comment reply box:
What changes have your family made (or plan to make) in an effort to live “greener?”
I started my own journey of “greener” living just over a year ago, when I all but quit using paper towels. I was a paper towel-aholic! In place of paper towels, I found some great shop towels at Costco and Sam’s Club, a 30-pack of towels costs less than $20 (which is still less than a club pack of paper towels!). I bought 3 packs and I now use those instead of paper towels and just throw them in the washing machine at the end of the day. It is better on the environment and MUCH BETTER on my pocketbook!
I also started to recycle, unplug most of the electronics in our house when not in use, and just recently, we planted 4 fruit trees in our backyard and I started making my own non-toxic cleaning supplies. These are just a few of the very simple things that we can all do to reduce our carbon footprint and take better care of our planet for future generations. They are also very helpful, especially in today’s economy, to add money back into your wallet to spend on products that really matter… like organic whole foods (*most* of which are naturally gluten-free (I’m talking Fruits and Vegetables here)! See where I am going with this?). 😀
I will use a Random Number Generator to pick the winner on Friday, April 23, 2010.
Good Luck! 😀
