EarthFirst.com, the site where I spent most of the year as Publisher and Assignment Editor, just published the last piece I worked on developing- 9 Easy Way to Green Up Your Life. It's a tongue in cheek article that lays out nine things anyone with an eight figure bank account can do to green up their life.

 

9- Get a Tesla Roadster.

 

8- Use Richard Branson's new bio jet fuel in your private plane.

 

7- Try to cut down on your travel, fly to Europe instead of the Far East for New Years.

 

6- Have your private chef use locally grown vegetables and meat, and possibly even consider buying an existing organic farm.

 

5- When going on vacation, consider renting Johnny Depp’s eco-resort island.

 

4- When car companies send you SUV’s using FedEx Overnight, buy carbon credits to offset the flight.

 

3- Reuse your dental floss.

 

2- Put solar panels up on top of all your houses, guest homes, horse barns, recording studios, basketball courts, and merry go-rounds.

 

1- Have your nanny use public transportation to cut down on her carbon footprint.

 

Swing over to EarthFirst.com and read the whole thing, it'll get you laughing.
