Day 175 of our Green Year: EcologyFund.com

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends out there! A great day at the ranch for us today because we had friends and family over, had a great green turkey dinner and had CBC News and Radio come by to do an interview with us!

As many of our readers will know, we try and find sites where you can click to go green from your home or office computer, without taking too much time out of your day. Well, we have another one for you: EcologyFund.com

This site is owned and operated by The Hunger Site Network and when you go to them and click on their sponsor buttons, you help to fund for critical habitat and wilderness preservation. Sponsors have agreed to pay to protect the project you can select. It costs you nothing, but every day you can help by clicking sponsor buttons to save habitats. Even if you just register, The Hunger Site Network will donate 500 square feet of wilderness in your name, and then keep a running tally of how much you have saved so far. As it says on the website of EcologyFund.com, all the monies from the sponsorships generated go to purchase and protect wild lands.

A great thanksgiving dinner for us using homemade stuffing, grain-fed turkey, potatoes, peas and carrots from the garden and even homemade pies. We had 13 people out and it turned out to be a great day for everyone. You can see a pic here.
