This year marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, but it symbolizes much more than that. Earth day is a day where citizens around the world pay global respect to the planet they live on.

Governmental Guidance For Green Business
The problem of establishing a credential is the lack of information on the subject. The EPA has the DfE project that helps sectors improve their products or services. After more than a decade of public angst over the environmental issues, there has been little offered as a governmental solution. In the fall of 2009, President Obama signed Executive Order 13514, which was one of the best outlines for the Green and sustainable businesses. This order was only applicable to governmental agenc

Environmental Awareness on Earth Day and Beyond
Earth day is rapidly approaching and as our planet ages its need for rejuvenation becomes more apparent. This is the perfect time to renew our vows with recycling, reclaiming, conservation, and utilization of energy-efficient tools. To reacquaint yourself with this terminology go to Envirocitizen.org and browse the glossary of eco-friendly terms section. When combined, these tools have an astounding impact.
