Happy Earth Day 2008

I liked this year's Google doodle of their logo in celebration of Earth Day. Turtles always remind me of Jen's nose.

In celebration of Earth Day, I'm pleased to announce that an initiative I've been working on for quite some time is now officially live. As I result of becoming more educated on sustainable building, I've partnered with some experts to create Eco Achievers, an online education company that will provide online courses on sustainability for homeowners and green building professionals.

Eco AchieversOur first courses deal with home energy fundamentals (like understanding that utility bill you receive every month) and figuring out ways to improve your energy efficiency. We also have a solar energy course, which is an in-depth examination of solar energy and it's applications to buildings like homes and small businesses.

While still a little rough, we feel our courses are ready for prime-time although we will continually work to improve them and add more courses to our catalog. If you're interested in green building topics, let us know and we may build a course just for you! And perhaps we can all carry a little bit of Earth Day into every day.
