Happy belated Earthday!!! 😀
As my friends say, I live in a bubble 😉 If it was not because of bloggers, I’d never know yesterday was Earth day~~~ Reading what you do to save our mother Earth inspired me to do more too.
- reusable bags for groceries
- re-use ziplocks (thanks Katie for reminding me this)
- walk, public transportation or car pooling when possible
Washington DC has began to charge for bags in groceries stores recently. As an economist, I can’t think a better way to make everyone participating on this Green Movement. China, despite its public image of being the world largest polluting country, has adopted this policy a year ago. Not to criticize, but I find inconsistency in the action of US government. When they claim/force other countries to pollute less, most of stores in US still give plastic bags for free. 😯
Q: What do you think? Would you start bringing your own bags to groceries if they charge you for it?
Easy lunch: stir-fry noodles with broccoli and chicken using GuiLin chili sauce

Goji berries are nutrient-rich fruits that are high in antioxidants and provide vitamins A, C, and B-complex. Among other benefits, goji berries are rich in iron, beta-carotene, selenium, germanium, and include 18 amino acids (a source of complete protein). Goji berries have almost 8 times the value of antioxidants of pomegranates and more than 10 times the ORAC value of blueberries. Scientists at Tufts University developed this scale for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, called the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) test. According to their research, foods that score high in this antioxidant analysis may protect cells and their components from oxidative damage.
