What is a Green PlumberEarth Day Around The World

To the untrained eye, the crowd of twenty million Americans who collectively celebrated the first Earth Day in 1970 looked like a swarm of bell bottoms and long hair. Forty years later, on the day that reminds us all to appreciate the environment by advocating for earth-friendly policies on all levels, 100,000 bald guys are having their own celebration. Buddhist monks are gathering in Thailand to chant and meditate for a cleaner and more peaceful world in honor of Earth Day. And they aren't the only ones who are making environmental action a global trend.

As you read this, swimmers in Monaco are doing laps in the Mediterranean Sea with green balloons attached to their wet suits; in Amsterdam, a guerrilla army of gardeners are planting flowers in every abandoned piece of land they can find; and school children are volunteering to clean up river banks in industrial communities throughout the Phillipines. It's a beautiful day. Go out and enjoy it with the rest of the planet.

Reeves Journal recently featured Licensed Green Plumber, Richard Cadogan, in its cover story about green home makeovers. Here is an excerpt from the article:

Cadogan feels he has a mission to educate his customers about their green options. He plans to put added focus on remodeling, retrofitting homes with water use reducing fixtures and doing water audits. Becoming a Green Plumber "just seemed to be a natural fit for me," Cadogan said, adding many of the conservation tactics discussed in GreenPlumber training- like collecting water in cisterns- is a way of life in other parts of the world.
