It’s Blog Action Day today.
This is the day when bloggers around the world unite to write about a single topic. For 2009, the theme is Climate Change.
And just like last year’s Blog Action Day on Poverty, I choose to give some simple and practical advice on how we can help solve this global issue.
In the past, I’ve written several posts that can help you save money – and if you think about it, most of them will not only give you some extra cash; but they can also reduce your impact on the environment.

I guess that’s it. I hope I was able to inspire you today to do more for our environment.
