Useful Environmental Resources for Individuals and Families

This resource list is not limited to general environmental sources of information and products, but also resources that indirectly relate to our environment, utilize aspects of our natural environment for beneficial purposes, and impact health and lifestyle.

Community Gardening - You can garden on your own or pool your resources with neighbors and start a community garden for support and a healthy natural source of affordable food.  Don't forget to use natural organic and heirloom seeds that are not from chemically treated plants and have not been genetically modified / engineered.

Earth911 - The latest in wasteless living.  Locate recycling centers for hazardous materials, metal, glass, household products, batteries, paper, plastic, electronics, garden, automotive, and construction materials, and possibly make a little extra money at the same time. The site also has informative articles with reviews of new environmentally responsible products, how to do it yourself, low-waste restaurants, and hundreds of great creative ideas to live a more ecofriendly and thrifty life.

Eat Well Guide - Local, Sustainable, Organic.  Search nationwide by location for hand-picked cooperatives, as well as natural community gardens, farmer's markets,  community-supported agriculture (CSA), bakeries, bed and breakfasts (B&Bs), caterers, coffee shops, butchers, ranches, breweries, shops, and educational centers.

Energy Tax Credits - At least through 2016, homeowners can receive a one-time tax credit equal to 30% of the total investment cost for making energy-saving improvements to their homes including installing geothermal heat pump systems, purchasing Energy Star appliances, energy-efficient doors and windows, insulation, air conditioners, furnaces, boilers, and more.  The cap was $1500 but was slated to be raised, so check out the latest tax form 5695.

eRideShare - An online community serving over a million visitors that helps you start carpools, advertise or respond to ads for shared cross-country trips, transportation to help employees get to work, students to college, people to doctor's appointments, airports, events, etc. while saving on gas, auto maintenance costs, becoming less energy dependent, meeting new friends, and helping the environment.
